Wills & Trusts FAQ's

Can I save the will I've started and finish completing it later?

Yes! You're always able to come back later to complete your document or return to update it if you need to make edits, 100% for free.

If you already have a verified account and password with FreeWill, you can log in with your credentials and make your edits.

If not, then simply begin the process again with the same email address you originally used. You'll then be asked to verify your email address and set a password. Once this is done, you'll be able to log in to re-access your document for completion or edits.

Can I print out a form and complete it offline, or do I need to enter my information online?

Unfortunately, we don't offer blank forms to fill out. Many of our users go through the online tool's question and answer process once to get a feel for things, look at the sample output, and then go back to modify it. You'll notice that we never ask for very private information like social security numbers, and our website is highly secure for the information you do provide to us. 

I don't have a lot of assets to leave to anyone. Does it still make sense for me to have a will?

Yes! Estate planning experts agree that it's important for everyone - no matter how much money or property they have - to have a plan in place. Aside from specifying their wishes for the distribution of their property, a will lets you address several other important items, such as designating a guardian for your children or pets, creating a digital executorship so someone can handle your online accounts after you've passed, and setting out your funeral and burial wishes.

Can I use FreeWill to make a will for someone else?

At this time, FreeWill's will product is only intended to be used by the actual testator of the will. 

That said, you might still want to go through our online questionnaire with that other person requiring assistance - by going through our questions, they can get a sense of what a will consists of, which could save them time and money. Our account page also provides a number of resources to find local trusts & estates lawyers by using our FreeWill Fellows who have each been asked to provide a review of our forms to confirm they create a valid instrument under the laws of their jurisdiction, before signing on to join the Fellows community.

My spouse/partner and I share the same account. Can we create two different wills with the same account?

You absolutely can! Just make sure that you each have your own profile, and then you can create a will under your individual profile. For more information on how to add another profile please read this article!
