Can I use FreeWill if I live outside of the United States?

It depends on where your property is located. FreeWill currently creates wills that are valid for the disposition of property located in the fifty states and DC. So, even if you live abroad, you can use FreeWill to direct the distribution of assets you have that are located within a U.S. state or DC. However, any property of yours that is located abroad will have to be addressed in a separate will that is valid for the region in which that property is located. You should consider consulting with a local lawyer to find out more.
