    Yes or no, is it legally binding, what's generally in it, and did you need an attorney to help?

    No, don't really need one. All I really care about happening after the fact is that I take all my organs to the grave with me.

    Yes I do...since my divorce I've had one......
    just re done it to update.....want to make sure that the people I want get what's left when I go.....
    also stated in mine which funeral parlour I want to use.....
    got a govt funded agency to do mine for free of charge....
    if you die intestate (without a will) usually the government takes a huge share and is in control of your affairs....In this country anyway......
    my son left without a will and it's causing problems with my ex and I...wish he'd had a will..

    Do not have one right now, but after court on Monday there will be. My Mom split the the value of my grandmother's house after it sold, a decent chunk of money. If my Mom were to go, I'm an only child then it all goes to me. I have no children and I refuse to let my Aunt have it, so I will have to get a will written.

    As far as burials and stuff like that go, I'm not worth land it would take. Put me in a cardboard box and burn me up. Spread my ashes around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, not far from where I live and I'll be in gearhead's heaven.

    I don't have one. I have the paperwork to fill it out from my lawyer but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

    I did one with the help of a book and online (didn't want to alert family as attorney is Dad's friend and frankly didn't want to shell out big bucks for it). Should be legally binding as they are really simple to do, write it out and get it notarized.

    I have nothing worth giving away but my thoughts, which don't require a will.

    No not really. I mean if i had a legal one everyone would think i was crazy because of my age and also the fact that i dont even own anything worth while. I'm thinking about actually though just putting a together a paper with what the few things i that i want certian people to have and what to do after and what not. Not much.... probably not even worth it but ... we'll see.

    Nothing of value, not sure what to do with my cat. I hope someone will take good care of him... I don't want him returning to a shelter.

    i have one but i'm in the middle of a divorce so it's going to change for sure. the slate will be wiped clean and her name will be history, all beneficiaries will be changed too.

    I know that I should write a will since I own my condo with my mom. I also should write a living will since I do not want to be resusitated, but it seem to much foreshadowing to write. I think I'll end up writing a will just before commiting suicide.

    I don't really have a whole lot of valuables; but I do have a will. I've had one for years~ ever since I bought something that was 10k+ > but that ended up going with the Ex during the split... so now I don't really have anything left in the will except for my kitty!! XD

    I don't have one, but I do have life insurance with my superannuation fund that's worth quite a bit. I keep meaning to update the beneficiaries of it so that everything from it will go to my girlfriend. On a side note, the exclusion period for suicide is now up so it'll pay out even for that.
     
  18. well its actually a living will (call an advanced directive in some states). i got it a few years ago so if i ever end up in the hospital, they cannot take "heroic measures" to save me and do things i do not want that will prolong my life. no ventilator, tube feeding, etc. asking that all life sustaining treatment be withheld.

    i realize its not completely foolproof, but its the only way of having my wishes known should i become unable to convey my wishes.
