Your Will must first be printed, and then signed in the presence of two witnesses. If you do not have access to a printer,
we can print it for you and mail it out. The cost for this is

We also offer other services like MyLifeLocker™, a Financial Power of Attorney, and a Living Will.

What about document storage?
We do not store physical documents, but we allow you to maintain an account with us if you want to update your document in the future.

You are able to print the document as often as you wish during that first year. You can download it as a PDF or Word file,
but to make your document a legal Will, it must first be printed, and then signed in the presence of two witnesses.
The online version is there for your convenience only.
If you choose not to maintain an account with us after the first year, your initial payment is all you will ever pay.
We do not keep credit card details on file and cannot automatically charge beyond this initial payment.

If you choose not to maintain an account with us, you will always have your printed, signed document.

If your account has not been touched in years, and it is inactive, we reserve the right to remove the account.
You will receive an email notification that your account might be removed. However, in practice,

to reactivate it.
This will give you one year of unlimited updates from the date of payment. (You will not have to pay for your inactive years.)
