Want to know more? Here’s a closer look at what you can do with Nolo's Quicken WillMaker & Trust:

    • Will: The heart of every estate plan is a will, also known as a last will and testament. This legal document puts you in control of who inherits your property and who would take care of your children if it were ever necessary. Without a will, state law determines these issues. Your will also allows you to name an executor (sometimes called a “personal representative”) to carry out our wishes. And you can appoint a trusted person to manage property left to young people. With WillMaker, you can revise and update your will whenever you like.

      Also, use WillMaker to give your executor authority over your digital assets, including social media accounts, online banking and more.

    • Living Trust: Distribute your assets and provide property management while keeping your trust property out of lengthy and expensive probate proceedings after you die.
    • Health Care Directive: Spare your loved ones difficult decisions by laying out your wishes for medical care and naming someone to carry out your instructions:

      • Health Care Power of Attorney: Name a trusted person (your "health care agent") to make important medical decisions for you if necessary.
      • Living Will: State what types of medical treatment you do or do not want if you are too ill or injured to direct your own care. Your health care providers must do all they can to follow your wishes.
    • Durable Power of Attorney for Finances: A durable power of attorney ensures that someone you trust (called your "agent" or "attorney-in-fact") will be on hand to manage the many practical, financial tasks that will arise if you become incapacitated. For example, bills must be paid, bank deposits must be made and someone must handle insurance and benefits paperwork. In most cases, a durable power of attorney for finances is the best way to take care of tasks like these. You can also give your attorney-in-fact authority over your digital assets.

    • Documents for Your Executor: Make sure your executor has all the forms and instructions necessary to do the job: checklists, letters, notices and claim forms.

    • Final Arrangements: Plan a funeral or other ceremony and ease the burden on your loved ones. Describe your preferences for burial, cremation, memorials, obituaries and more.

    • Information for Caregivers and Survivors: Organize your information so that your survivors don't have to. Use these documents to give them details about everything from bank accounts, to passwords, to the names of people you'd like contacted in the event of your illness or death.

    • Letter to Survivors: Use the Letter to Survivors to leave your loved ones detailed explanations about your decisions. For example, you may want to let them know why you made certain gifts or named a particular person to be your executor. You can also use your letter to leave some general thoughts about your life.

    • Personal Finance Documents: Over a dozen forms let you handle common financial situations, such as lending or borrowing money between friends or family, creating a bill of sale, and closing a credit card account.

    • Home & Family Documents: Practical forms you can use every day to help run your home and keep your family safe, including authorizations and agreements, promissory notes, limited powers of attorney, and child and elder care forms.

Review by Robert H.
Excellent product (Posted on 12/31/2020)

Good but too basic for my needs. by Roger C.
The trust maker does not allow me to make the trust I need. (Posted on 12/12/2020)

Not quite dead yet. by Mark O.
Appears perfectly adequate but since neither my wife nor I have died yet we can't say how the results will hold up in court. One of us will be sure to post an updated review from beyond the grave. (Posted on 12/9/2020)

Excellent Product for Simple will by JOHN B.
Just what I wanted; comprehensive will, POA, and more. Plus very easy to use, ie entered demographic info once and it carried over to all other relevant documents, plus easy Q&A walkthru to complete necessary items.
The only thing I would have liked was the ability to manually change a few things -- the final doc is produced as a PDF and not editable.

This product is great and I highly recommend it. Thanks, NOLO! (Posted on 12/7/2020)

So easy. by Patricia C.
So easy to navigate
Fit my needs perfectly. (Posted on 12/6/2020)

Review by David R.
Easy to use and covers it all. (Posted on 10/22/2020)

This is way too basic by Lisa M.
This doesn't have enough variability for writing a valid will. This is very, very basic (Posted on 10/21/2020)

Family Wills and Trust by Patsy H.
This product is very helpful and informative for creating wills and trusts. Thank you. (Posted on 10/9/2020)

Review by Virginia R.
Very easy to use. Exactly wanted it needed (Posted on 8/4/2020)

Still One of the Best Basic Will Tools Available. by Troy S.
This product was purchased to update the estate of my parents who had not updated their will in over 20 years (that too, using WillMaker). WillMaker Plus came with 1 year free access to the Revocable Living Trust software which is what I was primarily interested in. Between WillMaker Plus and the Trust software, my parents now have a organized estate which includes the trust, pour-over wills, healthcare power of attorney, and financial power of attorney documents in a California-legal format. Getting the product on sale in August was a perk as well. The software is simple and straightforward, just as the Nolo software has always been. In some ways it is a bit too simple, since you can't make minor modifications, but these are legal document templates that are meant for low stress. (Posted on 8/4/2020)

Review by Sharon L.
thrilled you are making this product for Macs (Posted on 8/4/2020)

Probably excellent by Christophe R. Patraldo
I gave it a five-star review but reserve the right to change my opinion. I only use linux so having no Windows or Mac computer I haven't even downloaded my copy yet. I bought it as a family project and am waiting to return home for a visit where I can use it with someone who has a mac. (Posted on 8/4/2020)

Review by Ruben G.
Product is good and fast I personally think in some of the questions the verbiage need to be put in to simpler language. We are not all Lawyers (Posted on 8/4/2020)

Review by JME
Very helpful (Posted on 8/4/2020)

Review by James B.
Willmaker 2018 is a product that everyone should have. Do you realize how many people don't have a will done. This software will get the job done for you. It's easy, fast and simple to use. (Posted on 8/4/2020)

Good product by William B.
Nice product. Easy to use. (Posted on 8/4/2020)

Complete and easy to use. by LeRoy E.
PRO: Leads the user into completing documents relevant to their situation. Makes the user think and encourages further planning.
CON: If doing a spouse document set, the user ends up with quite a few unnecessarily duplicate pages; instructions and information. (Posted on 8/4/2020)

Excellent except for calculations by Terry W.
WillMaker is incredibly easy to use and was just what we needed to update our Wills before leaving the country. My only criticism is that it asks for bequests in fractions which makes it difficult to calculate. Don't know why you can't enter amounts as percent which makes a lot more sense. (Posted on 8/4/2020)

Very good, easy and thorough by Lloyd S.
This is a very thorough program for making wills and many other legal documents. It is very easy to use and does a remarkable job of covering every detail necessary for each document. (Posted on 8/4/2020)

Easy and Thorough by Anita K.
We really liked how easy this product was to use. We had looked in to hiring an attorney but realized all the questions we wanted answered were in this software and at a remarkable price. We would highly recommend it. (Posted on 8/4/2020)

Fantastic by Richard K.
Simple to use and thorough. Breezed right through wills for both my wife and I in no time. (Posted on 8/4/2020)

Easy to use and helps you with the things in life you don't want to think about. (Posted on 8/4/2020)

Good product and easy to use. by Janice H.
Good product. Have used previous versions. This product removes all the legal jargon, For simple estate documents this product is great. (Posted on 8/4/2020)

Easy to setup and use Legal forms by Ransom T.
Provided me much needed legal forms for an ailing mother. There have been no issues when providing these documents to various entities. (Posted on 8/4/2020)

Great Program by William W.
Very easy to use and a great way to prepare your final documents without paying the expensive fees that a lawyer charges. (Posted on 8/4/2020)

Review by Larry S.
I have found this to be very useful in deciding what to do with the various documents involved, Getting answers to various questions is easy and found to be useful. This is a useful product and the layout of the various features is very logical. (Posted on 8/4/2020)

I highly recommend this product. by Paul A.
This program, which runs on Mac and PC, really helped my wife and I take care of some difficult but very important business. It is very easy to use and has resources to guide the user along the way. For example, the advanced directive form was much easier and more complete in Nolo, than the decent form our local hospital provided. I highly recommend this product. (Posted on 8/4/2020)

Super Simple by Jim A.
Found very easy to use to make will and supporting documents with clear instructions on how to complete each one to be valid in my state.
