Simple Will basics

Deciding to create a Simple Will is one of the best gifts you can give to your loved ones. Having a Will in place when you pass away eliminates the confusion and uncertainty that comes with dying intestate (without a Will). A Simple Will provides your loved ones with a roadmap for how you wish your assets to be distributed and lets you appoint an Executor to oversee the administration of your estate. By completing our Simple Will form, you gain the peace of mind that comes from knowing your wishes will be honored when you are gone.

When is a Simple Will the right document?

Making a Simple Will may be the right choice for you if:

  • You own assets and/or property, including digital assets, that will need to be distributed after your death and you want to decide how those assets and property are distributed.
  • You want to choose the people or organizations that will receive your property after your death.
  • You want to appoint the person or organization who will carry out the terms of the Will.
  • You want to nominate a Guardian for minor children. (A Guardian is someone who will be legally responsible for your children if the other parent is unable to serve as the natural guardian.)

Your assets may include things such as financial and investment accounts, real property, vehicles, and other personal property. The term "digital assets" refers to any online accounts or files stored on a computer or server. Examples of digital assets you might want to incorporate into your Simple Will include email accounts, blogs, social-networking websites, and online backup services, as well as photo and document sharing websites, financial and business accounts, domain names, virtual property, and computer files.

Can I make a Will online for free?

Making a Simple Will is one of the best – and easiest – ways to protect yourself and your loved ones. Instead of spending hundreds of dollars to have an estate planning lawyer draft your Simple Will, you can make one yourself for free on Rocket Lawyer.

Once you have completed your Simple Will, it will be stored safely in your account so you can access it anytime, anywhere, on any device. As a Rocket Lawyer Premium member, you also have the ability to download your Simple Will in PDF format or as a Word document, and you may make copies or print it anytime. You can also use your Rocket Lawyer Premium membership to have your Simple Will reviewed by an estate planning attorney in our On Call network.

Are DIY Wills legal?

State laws govern most issues related to Wills. As such, the requirements for making a valid Simple Will are determined by each individual state. The Will you make on Rocket Lawyer will take into account your state of residence and will generate the legal language needed to meet the requirements for a valid Will. Typically, those requirements include being over the age of 18, being of sound mind, and signing the Will in front of witnesses. If you have questions about making or updating your Simple Will, ask a lawyer today.
