Our service guides you through the process of creating a Will. We will direct you through nine sections that will ask about your family situation (whether you are married or have children), then you make key appointments like guardians for children, and Executor, and then you describe the distribution of your estate (everything that you own).
Once you have stepped through the service, you can add the Will service to your account by purchasing MyWill. This will allow you to download and print the entire document. Once you have paid, you can print it as many times as you wish, and you can update it or make changes as often as you wish for one year.
Once you have printed the document, you then must sign it in the presence of two witnesses who are not beneficiaries in the Will. In fact, they must have nothing to do with the contents of the Will, so the spouse of a beneficiary would also be an inappropriate choice for a witness.
After you have signed the document, and your two witnesses have signed in your presence and in the presence of each other (we provide more instructions on the signing process from within the service), then you have a legal Last Will and Testament.
There is no need to register the document at this point.
You simply store the document somewhere safe in a place that is known and accessible to your Executor (who you will appoint in your Will). After you have passed away, your Executor will take the document to the probate courts and present themselves as the Executor. They will then be given a court document called a "grant of administration" which they can use to gather your assets from places like banks and other financial institutions.
All the time you are alive, you can update your Will whenever your circumstances change.
