Customer Question
A few years ago...

A few years ago, I prepared a "Will" using your system and now I can't find it so I need a copy. My name is*****: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Can you help me with that?

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Yes, it has been filed and reported. As I said I did this a few years ago.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I don't really need a lawyer, I just want to know how I can get a copy of that "will?

This is an informational service, not a will preparation service. Are you sure you created the will with Just Answer and not with Legal Zoom or another type of self-help service?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
