We had to get a will, but did not know how to make one ourselves. We consulted with lawyers, but with the added fees it was quite costly. We checked online for resources but these were mostly software packages that we'd have to pay to use. We weren't sure what type of quality we would get. I stumbled across online and it looked interesting. I was worried that I wouldn't know how to complete a will by myself, but decided to give it a try anyway. FormalWill answered my basic questions for making a will and helped me every step of the way. Thank you FormalWill! - Peter
