Do you have a will? - October 4, 2009, 06:33 PM

Like "last will and testament?" A living will?
I was speaking with a friend today about wills. I kinda need to have one made. There have been a few occurances in the last month that have reminded me of how quickly our lives can change.

Who has a will? If you do, what did it take to create it? Did you have to meet with a lawyer? Pay a fee? My friend mentioned downloading a computer program, filling out the will, and then filing it with the county. Is that all it takes?

Thank you!

This is very true I need to work on mine also its kinda one of those things you wanna put off but its very important! To my knowledge all you have to do is write it out and sign it. I'm also interested in what goes into it.

Tanya, yes, there is a website you can go to do make a will. There is a fee but it is legal and binding. I will be doing the very same very soon.
If the statement "only the good die young", I have plenty of time but then again, I have really bad luck so I will be doing the will very soon. It shouldn't take long, my dog will go to my daughter, my life insurance will cover the bills and all I ask is to NOT have an autopsy and to be buried. ABSOLUTELY do not want to be cremated.

with all the recent events yes its def something to think about... especially if you have children etc... my ex wifes brother passed away of a heart attack about a mo ago and was SEPERATED not divorced for around 3 yrs now and just never filed the divorce papers... now the wife is trying to uphold the 250k life ins policy saying shes entitled to it not his 11yr old daughter... the family wants it in a trust fund for his daughter and she wants to get it and basically blow it sooo ensuing big fight is coming....

but anyhow a will would have solved it all so if you dont have one GET ONE...

you can download it and file it with the county... its best though to involve a lawyer so there is no loopholes... so the wrong person doesnt benefit etc...

Yeah, I need to do one too. I had one drawn up after I made it out of the Pentagon on 9/11 and with all of the people who I either knew or "knew" who are no longer with us, I have been thinking about this as well. Maybe I need to dig that draft copy up and get it legalized too.

Oh Stacey, I had no idea you were in that building when that terrible thing happened!!! I am so sorry honey! That is a horrible thing to go through. I'm glad you were spared!!

It's essential to have a will and adequate life insurance, especially when engaging in inherently dangerous activities like sportbike riding. It's also important to carry emergency contact information on your person when riding AND to enter a number in your cell phone under the name "EMERGENCY" so that another can find it quickly. Finally, you will help your loved ones and/or friends if you create a document that provides comprehensive instructions for handling your affairs should something unfortunate occur.

Yep, I've got a will. Had a pre-paid legal service as a benefit of my last employer, so for the $15 I was paying each month, I took advantage of the will service, and had one written up. I don't really have a whole lot, but everything will be given to dad, and he can sort out my shit if I croak.

Exactly! That's the point of this thread (in my own little way).

How did you guys hear about legalzoom? Just googling it or from a reference? I guess my first step is going to go get life insurance in an amount high enough to pay off my house and vehicles. PS: I heard that the average funeral cost is over $20K!!!!
