How do I finalize my will after using Qwill?
After creating your documents with Qwill, you need to follow a few additional steps to legally “execute” your will.
Look through your will and make sure all your details are correct. If you need to make any changes, just go back to your Qwill account to make the necessary edits, and resend yourself the updated will document via email.
Witness and sign
Print – you’ll need a paper copy of your will.
Find two witnesses** – your witnesses must be over the age of 18 and “disinterested,” meaning they aren’t receiving anything under the will.
Make it a party – sign and date your will in front of your witnesses (make sure they know it’s your Last Will and Testament!) and have your witnesses do the same. You and your witnesses must all be together and watching each other sign.
**Louisiana residents only: your will must be notarized, and you and your witnesses must sign the will in the presence of the notary.
Store in a safe place
Your will is now legally executed! Keep it somewhere safe and let your loved ones (including your executor or personal representative) know where to find it. You can update the location of your documents from your Estate Page in Qwill.
On the Estate Page, mark that you have printed and executed your will so there won’t be any confusion in the future.
