Our 5 Step Process
You can purchase Smarter Will™ documents bundled with legal advice from our expanding network of estate planning firms nationwide. Watch for a Smarter Will™ law firm to be available in your state.
All of the law firms in the Smarter Will™ network charge the same fees and all of the documents are not only state specific, but our participating lawyers tailor the documents to your specific circumstances.
Legal advice and consultation is included in the fixed fee for each document or document set.
Some sites provide cheap, easy and fast online wills without attorney involvement. But the liability remains on your shoulders. On the other hand, visiting a law firm to create a basic last will can be expensive, time consuming and intimidating.
Smarter Will™ is the best of both worlds: giving you the power to create a legally sound document online with the help of attorneys, while keeping the price low.
When you arrive at one of our Smarter Will™ law firms sites to purchase a legal service you go through the following steps.
Gain access to our client space to get started. Registering does not obligate you to make a purchase. It simply allows you to preview the forms and gain access to Smarter Will community resources.
2. Complete Forms
Preview the forms and complete them before you purchase. Some sites lure you in with a “get your will in 15 minutes” enticement. You won’t finish a Smarter Will in 15 minutes, but you certainly should have it complete within the hour. And for such an important milestone, isn’t one hour worth your time?
Once you’ve completed your documents, you’ll need to purchase them and any additional services that you choose.
4. Receive Attorney Review
This is our favorite part. Your documents will be reviewed by an attorney. Each law firm will review basic spelling, grammar and consistency, but will also review the documents to make sure they are adequate and appropriate for your unique situation. If the validity of your document is questioned after you die, your family can turn to your selected law firm to help validate it. That’s the Smarter Will™ difference.
5. Receive Document for Signature
Your official documents will then be delivered in a special packet within three business days or less.
