5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect solution for me June 19, 2012
Verified Purchase
I've used this software to create a Revocable Living Trust (my main objective), Durable Power of Attorney for Financial Affairs, Power of Attorney for Health Care and soon will create a pour-over will to cover everything not already in the Trust. The software was easy to install and use.

It walked me through the entire process, making suggestions and giving examples of the form the data might take. It started out by asking the State to which these documents should apply, and then used only the approved formats for it. Really, this whole process was very similar to using Tax Return software.

I am very pleased with the results, especially since it cost only 1%-10% of what an attorney would have charged for the same thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy enought! June 10, 2012

Willmaker is a good product. I found the question/answer process straightforward. There was plenty of guidance on the complexities of each question. It does take a while to go through the process - set aside a couple of evenings.

3.0 out of 5 stars WillMaker Premium September 26, 2012
By Webfoot

The best I could score was a 3. This is due to the very limited capability of the 2 main programs, Will Maker & Trust maker. Their capability are limited to very basic documents. There's no ability to differ from the basic program.

I'm most interested in creating a Revocable Living Trust. This is to be a joint trust, husband & wife. Program only permits a joint trust to be created is if both trustmakers serve as trustees which might not be possible due to inability of one trustmaker to serve as trustee. Being seniors, we want to make provisions for our grandchildren. Our children are still building their families, future grandchildren are possible. No provision to state yet to be born grandchildren are to be beneficiaries as well as those alive at this time. What do you do about the spouse or former spouse of one of your children if that child is not alive at the time of your death? How do you address the needs of a grandchild under these circumstances? This program can't address these real world situations. Noticed several times the program and manuals say "go see an attorney."

I have some experience with professionally drawn up trusts. The core trust Doc for my folks was >60 pages in length. The sample TurstMaker shows is 6. Seems to me something is missing in the 10 fold difference in Doc length and it could be something important in hindsight.

These basic capabilities may be adequate for some but I suspect many of those savvy enough to be thinking about Estate Planning will find the program lacking.

As for the other modules, health care directive, POA, etc. they look more useable to a wider audience.

Wish the program was more flexible so it could handle a broader spectrum of needs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Adequate if you have some knowledge November 2, 2012

The price was right. I started with an attorney visit for my trust. Since the attorneys used canned software and charge a %^$# fortune, I decided to take a different route and try Legal Zoom.com. After battling with the "experts" at Legal Zoom and realizing that they were clueless and would not release an electronic editable file, I checked online and found Nolo. This package contains everything and more. Fortunately I have a background in the review of legal documents and am fluent at reading and understanding legalese.

In the wrong hands this software could be disastrous. You could easily end up with a document that is about as legal as a contract scratched on a wet paper napkin. However, with some reading and patience, this software was used to create a fine Revocable Trust, pour over will, detailed arrangements for the dispersal of my cremated remains as well as a detailed living will that tells them when it's okay to pull the plug on me.

Basically I input all of the data and then exported the information to an editable file.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quicken Will Maker with Nolo Living Trust August 14, 2012
By Joe Bob
Verified Purchase
I like the fact that this came bundled together. With the idea that you don't want to put every checking or savings account and debts (i.e. Auto Loan, Credit Cards, etc.) in a Living Trust but would still like the Trust to manage the settlement of debts and assets prior to distribution, you can setup your Will to transfer these assets and debts to your Trust in the event of your death. You actually need both for a complete setup.

I would also recommend you take the final draft to a Lawyer for review prior to putting in effect. What this package does is help to put your thoughts in order and directs you with the leg work which will save you $ with the Lawyer. You were going to have to do the leg work anyway.

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too Simplistic December 13, 2012
This item installed easily and performs as well as could be expected. However the product is way too simplistic and does not allow for anything but the most simple of wills. No flexability to add comments or exceptions to the sandard wording.

This software would not load on my computer. Nolo said they have been having a problem with certain PCs running Windows 7. Their programmers are "working" on it. I could not use the download or the CD. Used a totally different on-line software. It was cheaper, too.

I was able to use this to create a living trust. It does have some opportunity to allow more flexibility. It would not allow you to edit the name of the trust other than your name
