Do I have to have a lawyer to write my will?

By: Undisputed Legal/Court Service Department

No. If your will meets the legal requirements established by your state’s law, it is valid, whether or not you wrote it with a lawyer’s help. However, a lawyer can help ensure that your will is more than just valid. Your lawyer can make sure that the will does what you really want it to do. For this reason, more than 85 percent of Americans who have wills worked with a lawyer.
