Make a Will to Protect Those Who Matter Most

Like it or not, you’re not going to live forever. When you go, your loved ones will be dealing with a loss. By making a will, your parting gift is the assurance that they will be cared for according to your wishes. This legal record explains how your estate, which consists of everything you own, will be distributed after you pass away.

If you don't have a Will, you need to get one done ASAP. The good news is that you can make your own Will online with Legal Beagle. We make it easy to navigate the legal requirements of how to create a will so that you can ensure your family and legacy are protected after you’re gone.

Create your Will online now - it takes less than 20 minutes and for a limited time costs only $65!


 

IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ

If you own a business or a family trust and have special wishes for how they should be run when you die, this Will isn't appropriate for you and you will need to see a lawyer. This Will can be used if you want to leave your stuff to one special person, or equally between more than one person. If you're unsure about what you need, please talk to a lawyer.

Legal Beagle is fiercely committed to making the law affordable and accessible for all Kiwis. We do this by providing DIY legal documents using the Automio legal document automation software. Legal Beagle is not a law firm or a substitute for a law firm. We are unable to provide any kind of advice, explanation, opinion, or recommendation about possible legal rights, remedies, defences, options, selection of legal documents or strategies.

FAQ

What happens if I pass away without creating a will?

The law has a strict formula for determining how an estate is divided if you die without a will. There is very little flexibility in how your property and assets are divided. When people die without a will, family feuds are more likely to occur. There is also more time and cost involved to sort out your estate if you die without a will. The preparation of a will is the only way to ensure that your children are cared for and your assets divided according to your wishes.

What should my will cover?

Your will should cover many details including:

• Legal guardians for your minor children
• Details on how you want your money distributed among your family, friends, charities, etc.
• Who should receive your possessions, such as artwork, family heirlooms and jewelry
• The executor of your will
• Your wishes for how your remains will be handled

When you use Legal Beagle’s will preparation software, you will first complete a questionnaire that covers all of these aspects and more. It will help you to make sure you cover your bases so you can protect those who matter most.

Do I need a lawyer to prepare my will?

Technically, you do not need a lawyer to prepare your will; however, if you create your will without any legal guidance, you run the risk of having a will that is not legally valid. While you can state your wishes, there are certain aspects of a will that must be in compliance with New Zealand laws. Legal Beagle’s will preparation tool helps you create a legally valid will.

Is a will prepared through Legal Beagle legally binding?

New Zealand law states that a will is legally binding when it is:

• Established in writing
• Witnessed and signed by two people in your presence (these cannot be beneficiaries of the will)
• Signed by you

Legal Beagle will give you signing and witnessing instructions to ensure that the will you create is legally binding, making it easier than ever to establish your last wishes. You can CLICK HERE to access our will signing and witnessing instructions.
