The system uses a unique question and answer format to guide you through the process of creating a Will. The system incorporates 3,000 questions but only promotes those relevant to each particular client’s circumstances and wishes, enabling you to prepare Wills ready for signature, speedily and accurately.
The system automatically drafts the Will document using the responses in the questionnaire. The system does not use template documents or word-processing, but creates the Will intelligently, drawing on a bank of some 400 precedents, each of which is automatically manipulated by the system to draft the appropriate Will for the client.
