Commonly Asked Questions
How long does the process take?
Most Just In Case Estates members create their last will package in about 15 minutes. Creating a revocable living trust takes 20-25 minutes.
Progress is saved as you go, and so you can always start now and come back to finish later.
What kind of personal information is required to create an estate plan?
Our step-by-step questionnaire guides you through everything you need to create your perfect estate plan.
You'll let us know details like your name, address, email, and (if you like) some basic information on your assets.
We DO NOT ask for or store any social security numbers, bank account, or other financial account numbers.
We're serious about security, and all personal information you provide is protected and encrypted with bank-level security. We never sell or share your information.
What is the difference between a last will and revocable living trust?
Last wills and revocable living trusts are the two most common estate planning tools.
A simple comparison highlights that revocable living trusts do everything that a last will does and more. However, that doesn’t mean that a revocable living trust is the better option in every case.
Choosing to create a revocable living trust or a last will is a personal decision driven by how you much value the advantages of a revocable living trust relative to its higher setup and ongoing maintenance requirements.
What happens if I die without a will?
If you die without a will or other estate plan, you forfeit the opportunity to direct what happens to things you own and the people and interests for which you are responsible.
The intestacy laws of your state, which are the laws that govern the administration of estates for people who die without a will, take over. Intestacy proceedings generally cost more and take longer compared to probate with a will, and they may lead to outcomes contrary to your desires.
I don't have a lot of assets. Do I need a will?
Every American adult should create an estate plan, regardless of whether you have a lot of assets or only a few.
When you create your last will or revocable living trust with Just In Case Estates, you'll do more than just specify who should receive your stuff after you pass away.
You'll also identify your assets (helping your loved ones administer your estate faster and with less stress), determine who should care for any people and pets for whom you're responsible, declare your end of life healthcare and memorial preferences, and share important memories and values.
I don't have kids. Do I need an estate plan?
There's more to estate planning than leaving an inheritance.
When you create your comprehensive estate plan package with Just In Case Estates, you'll ensure the continued wellbeing of your pets, specify health care preferences in the event of an emergency, and/or safeguard against the state appointing someone else to manage your finances if you become unable to do so yourself.
Can I make an estate plan without a lawyer?
For most people, choosing whether to make an estate plan with or without a lawyer is a matter of personal preference. You do not need a lawyer to make a legally valid last will or revocable living trust.
Just In Case Estates’ document generator is crafted by our network of attorneys, and our last will and revocable trust plans are guaranteed to be legally valid to meet the specific requirements of your state.
