In all 50 states, if you die without an estate plan, state law determines what happens to your property. The Quick & Legal Will Book shows you how to take control of those decisions. Use this book to create a will to distribute your property, name an executor, and set up guardianships for your children and their property.

Your will, made easy

Write a will that suits your needs with a minimum of fuss. This book provides all the forms and step-by-step instructions you need to create a simple, valid will that protects your family and property after your death.

Make a will that lets you:

  • name beneficiaries to inherit your assets
  • choose a guardian for young children
  • set up trusts for minors, and
  • name an executor (and a backup).

Learn how to:

  • choose appropriate witnesses
  • finalize your will, and
  • revoke or change your will if necessary.

This book also explains basic estate planning, including steps you can take to avoid probate court. The updated 9th edition includes the latest changes in federal estate tax law and a new appendix that lists state probate exceptions.

With Downloadable Forms: download wills, a beneficiary worksheet, and other forms (details inside).

"The most streamlined, yet thorough information available on how to write a valid will quickly and safely without a lawyer."Long Beach Press-Telegram

"This guide for general readers offers plain language, bullets, tips, cautions, and directions for creating a will; it also covers estate planning. The chapters go through the process of writing a basic will, with a final chapter on writing a more complex will. Coverage includes beneficiaries, property ownership, children, executor, estate planning, preparing the draft of the will, signing the final will, storing and copying the will, and changing or revoking the will. The book contains worksheets, fill-in-blank wills, and other forms. A companion web site offers downloadable forms. This eighth edition matches recent changes in federal estate tax law."
