What preparation do I need to do before I can get started on a LawOnline will?

Be ready with the full names of anyone who you are intending to appoint as a trustee or as a guardian for children. It's a good idea, although not essential, that you check with anyone who you want to appoint as a trustee, that they are will to accept the appointment. Decide who you want to make provision for and what it is that you want to leave for each of those people in your will.

When Should You Make a Will?

Even if you don't own much property, it is wise to have a will. Probably the best reason to have a will is to save your family some of the trouble and expense that occurs when a person dies without leaving a will. It can add considerably to the time, expense and trouble that is involved in tidying up the affairs of a person who dies, if the person dies without leaving a will.

You should make a will when you marry or enter into a civil union or a de facto relationship. When you have children, it is especially important to have a will.

How Do You Make a Will?

Because of the importance of your will, the law says it must be made in a prescribed manner. The LawOnline system ensures that you will make a valid will, as long as you carefully follow all of the advice that you are given by the LawOnline system and carefully follow all of the steps that you are advised to take.

You and 2 witnesses will need to sign the will, all in each other’s presence.

For each will, there can only be one person whose will is being made. Two people cannot make a single will together. They must each make separate wills.

How Long Will it Take?

You can make a will or trust using the LawOnline system in just five minutes, if you know exactly what you want to provide and don't need any advice. Realistically, you should expect it to take about 10 minutes. If you feel that you need to read all of the advice carefully, that will take you about 20 minutes.

When Will You Have Your Document?

  • It will be sent to you by email in a matter of seconds, immediately after you pay the fee and click the email button.
  • You will be able to download it again from your dashboard as often as you like and you will be able to email it to yourself or to someone else, as often as you like.

Can You Edit Your Document After You Have Received it and is it Free to Change?

  • It is free for you to edit your document for a year, as many times as you like. You won't be able to change the name of the person who has made a will, or the name of a trust, if you have purchased a trust. However, everything else is freely changeable, as many times as you like for a year.
  • After you have logged in you will see your name on the top menu. If you click on your name, you will see a link to your dashboard.
  • Just select the edit button that you will find on your dashboard, next to the link to the document that you want to edit.

How Are Your Documents Stored?

  • The LawOnline system keeps a copy of the latest version of any document that you create. Your documents are kept on a secure server which is fully backed up. They are available to you through your dashboard, which you can access by logging on with your username and password. After you have logged in you will see your name on the top menu. If you click on your name, your will see a link to your dashboard.
  • Your documents are kept for at least 7 years and any signed original documents that we may be keeping for you will be kept indefinitely.
  • In the unlikely event that the LawOnline business failed, the Law Society has a statutory power to ensure that your documents are protected.
