Are Do it Yourself Legal Wills the Way to Go?

‘We’ll make a will when we have kids…’I’ll write a will when I buy a house’. Sound familiar? Like thousands of Australians without a will, it’s often something we’ve thought about, but put off for years until we felt it really necessary. Perhaps you already have kids or a mortgage and have still procrastinated. No matter what your situation, it’s always a good time to write a will.

Save yourself a stack of cash – make a Legal will online

Don’t want to let the government sort out your estate?

Without a will your estate is left wide open for the  government to come in and second guess all your wishes.
