My estate planning (if I can actually use such a grandiose word as "estate" when referring to my worldly possessions) is not complex - no children or other such situations that require more thought and effort. But I do want to ensure that things go smoothly when the inevitable happens, so I thought I'd give this a shot.
I'm familiar with the Nolo books and have always found them clear and helpful. Their software is much the same - it walks you through each step and there is ample information as to the meaning and implications of all the options, both built into the software as well as the accompanying book. Takes a while to grasp everything, but I found it to be highly understandable.
Can't say that using this software is enjoyable given that it forces you to think about your mortality, but it is nicely done and served my needs perfectly. Granted, if I had a more complex situation such as having children and wanting to set up trusts for them, I'd probably use this as a starting point to get things organized, and then take it to an attorney to ensure everything is properly set forth.
