Is a Legacy Will legally valid?
Yes. Your Legacy Will is completely legally binding and the instructions you’ve left in your Will to look after your loved
ones after you die will be followed in exactly the same way as any other Will.
What is the difference between Legacy and a traditional Will?
With a traditional Will, you usually have to arrange an appointment with a solicitor at their offices, and then sit with them while they take the time to understand what your wishes are.
Our expert lawyers have helped us to create an app that is quick and easy to use and means that you can make your Will yourself, at any time, on your phone. You can also review and update your Will as many times as you like! In addition to creating your Will in minutes, you can leave your most treasured memories for your loved ones in secure online vaults where they’ll be stored safely for the future.
In the event of death, how can my Will and journal entries be accessed?
When someone dies, their estate (everything they own) is distributed according to that person's Will.
Your Will is stored securely by LegalZoom, and will be accessed by the person or persons you specified to be the
executor(s) of your Will but only after you die. They will administer your affairs in the normal way, including the
distribution of the online memories you have created for your loved ones.
I already have a Will, can I use Legacy as well?
Yes you can, but a person may only have one valid Will, so you should take steps to legally invalidate the previous
This can be as simple as writing "Cancelled" in large letters over the pages, but we recommend you shred your old Will
or otherwise destroy it completely to avoid any later confusion.
