We provide professional Will writing service helping you to have your Will written within days. To some of us, it makes a lot of difference between having a valid Will written and without one.

The #1 misconception is : “A Will must be written by a lawyer“.
The requirements of a valid Will are set out in the Wills Act and it is not a requirement that a Will must be drafted by a lawyer. The Law Society has indicated the same in their website:
In fact, anyone can write our own Will following the formalities and format provided in books, journals or websites. The main concern is : What if our situation is slightly more complicated than what the template can offer? In this case, you need to speak to someone with some practical experience to provide you an opinion. Always seek advice when you are in doubt.
Education counts, exposure counts more, experience counts most.

Expedite Legal Process
Generally, it takes a shorter time and lesser legal fee to settle an estate with a valid Will than the one without a Will.
