Hey, I'm 35 and want to make a will for peace of mind. Nothing much, just want to state how I'd like to be cared for and declare and executor. I've read that in NYC you don't even have to have a will notarized. I've also seen a few sites where you pay to make a will online like this one: http://www.nolo.com/products/online-will-NNWILL.html Any tips on getting started? I don't have or know a lawyer. Should I just fork over the $40 and make a will online?
