Is This Will Kit The Best Option For Me?

Use a Will Kit or Not?

Our will kit is perfectly suited for most. It is flexible enough to clearly represent your wishes and it produces an unambiguous, plain English, legal Will that is valid across the United States.

However, if your situation is complex, such as, having one or more ex-partners, children from more than one relationship, family trusts, complex business arrangements, and so on, we suggest you consider using an estate planning attorney to assist you with writing your will.

How To Make A Valid and Legal Will in the United States

For a will to be legally valid in the United States, the following conditions must be met:

  1. The person making the will must be of legal age. Most states consider that you are of legal age if you are 18 years of age or older, have been legally married, or, are a member of the United States military.
  2. The person must have 'testamentary capacity', which means they must have a sound mind and understand the effect of making a will, understand their estate value, and understand that the will dictates how their property will be disposed of.
  3. The person must have an intention to make the will.
  4. The will must be made voluntarily without any pressure from another person.
  5. The will should correctly dispose of all the testator's property and assets.
  6. If the testator has minor children, then the will should nominate an appropriate legal guardian to care for them if there is no surviving parent or guardian.
  7. Two witnesses (who are over 18 and who are not mentioned as a beneficiary in the will and not the partner of a beneficiary) must sign, and acknowledge the will in the presence of the person making the will. They must also see the will maker sign the will.

Some states require that a self proving affidavit is included as part of the Last Will and Testament. My Will Online includes a self-proving affidavit where required. Many states have adopted the Uniform Probate Code (last updated in 2010) which governs the legal requirements of a Last Will and Testament.
