Free will writing service

Free will writing service

Gathered Here offers a huge time-saving option for those after a fuss-free will. But if your circumstances are more complex than the norm, you might still need to seek out the help of an estate-planning expert.

Pros

  • Gathered Here wills are free to write and update – some services charge if you need to make changes.
  • These online wills are fast to complete and cover the essentials.
  • Better than nothing – millions of Aussies go without a will altogether. So, this free option could make a huge difference when it comes to settling your estate.

Cons

  • One size doesn't fit all – you may need to consult a professional if your situation is more complicated than average.
  • Some may struggle with the process required as you'll need to complete online, download and print before getting it signed and witnessed.
