You don't need a lawyer for stuff like that.  You can get software at Stapl=
es for wills and living wills.  Most wills are private, meaning you don't r=
eally file them with anyone, and most softwares are up to date or download/=
updateable for Mass laws. In Massachusetts, you r life insurance policy wil=
l specify who your estate (and kids) go to should you meet an untimely demi=
se and that would trump any will that might differ for whatever reason. If =
you own a house you may want a lawyer to file a homestead act on your prope=
rty, and you can usually use the one who helped with the sale of your house=
.  =

After you've written the wills, you take them to a notary.

Of course, the lawyers will tell you that you should really have a lawyer.


Peace,
