Do you have a Last Will and Testament? I must admit that we have been planning to get ours done for a long time, we were waiting to schedule an appointment with a lawyer and after some schedule issues, we ended up completely forgetting about it.
Thankfully, we recently used Willful to create our Will online, without having to pay a lawyer and all from the comfort of our living room.
Some people may think talking about a Will is a morbid topic or they feel like they are too young to have to worry about a Will. However, I am here to tell you how important it is to set up your Will as soon as you can.
Your Last Will and Testament outlines how you wish to distribute your assets such as property, money, or care of minor children after you die.
Not having a Will means that you haven’t left any instructions as to how you would like your property to be divided and distributed. The court will then decide who becomes the caregiver of your children and your estate may not be divided how you want it to be.
Creating your Will is a very important responsibility adults have after they reach the age of majority in their province or territory, and having a Will can help you protect your loved ones from future chaos and complications especially if you are a parent.
Both my husband and I set up our Legal Will online using Willful, and we loved how easy it was to navigate the software to get our Wills done. It was so simple. All we had to do was answer some questions, like choosing our executor, who the guardian would be for our children and how we wanted our assets distributed to beneficiaries, as well as our funeral/burial wishes. We then printed out the Wills, got two witnesses to sign them with us and that was all. It took us only 20 minutes.
Since the law requires you to print and sign your will, you can’t sign it online with Willful, so you must have a printer in order to print the paper documents.

It doesn’t take a long time to set it up, and the peace of mind is 100% worth it.
