5.0 out of 5 stars Effective, Easy To Use Software February 14, 2009
By Steve D
Verified Purchase
Installation was very easy on my Vista PC. Laws continue to change, so I like the availability of free legal updates through 2009.

I have already created several documents. The process is very easy. Documents you need to complete are suggested based upon your answers to a few simple questions. Documents are tailored to your home state. Help and examples are available at every step. The interface is basic, but effective.

The program actually goes beyond estate planning, to include personal finance and home/family documents. My software came with a nice 200 page YOUR LITTLE LEGAL COMPANION paperback, and a free 500 page PLAN YOUR ESTATE e-book.

I can see why this is America's #1 estate planning software. I highly recommend this software.

This software is fine for a couple with a couple of their own children.
But any complications, like divorced and remarried couples with children from prior marriages, it is virtually useless.
We found it easier to compose our own wills without assistance from Willmaker once we tried unsuccessfully to use Willmaker.
I was a little surprised with the lack of flexibility in the software.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I wanted this to be! January 16, 2009
Verified Purchase
I was looking for an inexpensive way to have a legal document that would provide my husband's and my preference for our child's custody in the unfortunate event of our deaths. This provides just that, as well as basic will and trust as well as other documents.

5.0 out of 5 stars Willmaker June 6, 2009
My update from Willmaker 2004 to the current 2009 was worth the piece of mind. It was reassuring to know that at least for my state, there were no major or even minor legal changes to the Will requirement. The program is exceptionally easy to follow and walks you through the creation of the will. There are excellent definitions in the margin for the terms being used.
Especially good, was the explanation of the duties and responsibilities and even options of the Personal Representative or individuals appoints as a Power of Attorney.
There is good flexibility to create a very simple will with very little input - or be specific as necessary.
Good job on all the documents included!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and quick February 17, 2009
Verified Purchase
Very easy to use, just click through and it generates all the paperwork you need for your will. Just get it witnessed, and your done. I haven't tried any of the (many) other documents that it can crank out, but it's worth it just for the will making part.

1.0 out of 5 stars no support as of 1/1/10 January 30, 2010
Verified Purchase
I am loading the software as this is being written. I can't comment on the quality of the product, but I can say that when I attemped to register the product online I was informed that support (by [...]) has expired. Now what? How will I know if everything is up to date? This product should be pulled no matter how good it may be if you can't get updates. Given the nature of what it's for, not being able to get the latest updates can be a disaster later on. I can't recommend it nor rate it higher than 1 star.
