Platform for Display: PC Disc Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Some years ago, my wife and I have a volume of "Testamentary Documents" drawn up by an estate planning attorney. For the "special friend reduced rate of nearly $2000., he produced a set of documents that are exactly parallel to the ones we could create ourselves by using this software. We rewrote everything, updated what needed changes, and eliminated any reference to that attorney from our estate documents. $49, is a lot less the $2000.!
This software is comprehensive. It includes everything needed - including the Living Trust - something that is imperative if you want your inheritees to be able to avoid going through the anguish (and expense) or Probate.
Yes, it takes time. I did it in a series of five sessions with our financial information in front of me for reference as well as older and now obsolete versions of these documents. It compares rather favorably to the time we spent organizing our data and then actually sitting with the attorney.
Nolo has produced a broad range of "do-it'yourself' legal documents. This package is, I think, among the clearest, most user friendly (the built in guides and tips are extremely helpful and easy to understand). Moreover, it is something that most people actually need at some point.
It is never too early to prepare these things and editing/changing them in the future is pretty straight forward. Why pay an attorney exorbitant fees for doing something that anyone who can follow directions can do for themselves? THe more complicated the estate, the longer it will take and, to be sure, some people's situations may require porofessional assistance. The small percentage of people who need that should certainly get it.
For most of us, this Nolo software is exactly what the doctor ordered... and what the estate planning attorneys hope you never discover.
Buying this is a very smart $40. investment.

PROS:
User interface is great
Easy way to make an accurate, important document
Introductory video is clear and informative
Free updates are automatic
Currently, Amazon price for CD with book ($36.94) is reasonable; software available as download-only from NOLO site for $34.99, or with CD for $51.99.
Package includes abridged edition of "The Legal Answer Book for Families"

CONS:
Free updates are only available through end of 2012
This program is still not available for Mac OSX
The data from my 2006 files were lost when it was opened in this version. (downgrade for this)
No upgrade path readily available; software is valid through 2012 only (updates no longer available after 2012, but software should still run, albeit with possibly outdated data).
Registration purportedly includes:
* Expert technical support
* Significant discounts on Quicken WillMaker upgrades; and
* A $10 coupon for purchase on nolo.com
What I got was:
* a free electronic download of "101 Law Forms for Personal Use";
* a coupon code for 15% off items at nolo.com
----------

NOLO press is famous for creating easy-to-understand legal books and software. I previously used WillMaker 2006 and found it to be a good, solid program that was relatively painless to navigate. This edition is somewhat improved from that version. The software automatically looked through my files for any old versions of my will and asked if I wanted to open the one it found. The file was opened and supposedly translated from the old version to the new format automatically and made available for editing.

I've used this program to create a Financial Power of Attorney for my Mom, and also a Advance Directive and Medical Power of Attorney for her as well.

When I use this program, I really feel like all of the information I need to answer the questions is right at my fingertips, and so it gives me increased confidence that I am getting what I need (legally) from it.

We had the Financial POA reviewed by a local attorney, and he said it looked fine to him, except that he had a couple of suggestions, which were easily accommodated by going back and making a few minor changes using WillMaker.

This product provides a workmanlike and thorough pass through basic documents. It's laid out logically, and the novice should have no problem creating a strong legal document. However, there's no way it can handle most of the special cases that arise for many. Does your family include children that are his, hers, and ours? Do you want to set up special education trusts or funds for your grandchildren? Want to provide for a wayward son, but only if he goes back to college and gets that degree? You're pretty much on your own (or in the hands of a lawyer) if you do. This software is great value for the money--no attorney will look at your situation for less than 10x the price of the software, but only for fairly simple situations will it be complete. Even so, you might use the package to start with and develop your ideas, then take it all to an attorney for finishing up your special situations.

Three complaints. First, the software doesn't let you print a will until it verifies that you have the latest update. But, when you read a note, in the February 2012 edition, that says something like, "Congress is considering changes in the law that might affect taxes starting in 2010", that does not exactly build confidence in the updatedness of the product.

Second, in a first run through, I entered the names of my grandchildren using nicknames. Later, I tried to update it, using first, middle and last names. I ended up with two entries for each child. It took me a couple hours to figure out how and where to delete the duplicates.

Third, my wife and I each have children and grandchildren. That means we each have step children and step grandchildren. The supposedly easy method for making a "duplicate" will for a spouse does not work for converting children to step children and visa versa. Unfortunately, one discovers that by trying it and then redoing it for the spouse.
