In order to meet each person’s unique needs, you must each fill out a Will Questionnaire.

Get Started!







What You’ll Need to Complete This Questionnaire:

Copy of your Prenuptial Agreement (if applicable).

Names and birth dates of your children and grandchildren (if applicable).

The name and contact information of the person you’ve chosen to be guardian of your child(ren), the trustee(s) of their estate, and your personal representative/executor.

To best serve you in completing your Will for estate tax purposes, you’ll be asked to provide the approximate dollar amount of such items as: your home, other real estate, bank accounts, vehicles, retirement plans, life insurance policies, and debts such as mortgages, loans, medical or others over $5,000.

p 3 of 6 • Will Questionnaire


A person lawfully invested with the power, and charged with the duty, of taking care of the person who is incapable of doing so because of age or other incapacity. Certain states do not allow anyone other than a biological parent to be appointed as guardian of minor children in the event of one parent’s death. Please call your Provider Law Firm for instructions for your state.

NOTE: Louisiana residents, although the provision in a Will providing for a guardian of minor children is not binding in your state, it is highly persuasive in a proceeding for the appointment of a guardian and should be included in the Will of any person with minor children.


A person appointed to manage the financial affairs of the one who is legally incapable of doing so because of age or other incapacity.

joint tenants with right of survivorship

A single property owned by two or more persons, under one title, with equal rights to the property.

At the death of one joint tenant, the property transfers to the surviving tenant.

Halfway Point

12) Are any of your children or other beneficiaries mentally or physically disabled or

have special needs?



If so, note any special provisions:

If so, are they presently receiving, or do you anticipate that they may apply for, SSI

benefits in the future?



Note: If you leave a bequest, not left to a qualified trust, the recipient might be disqualified from SSI benefits.

13)If your children are under age eighteen (18), state the following for the person you wish to act as their guardian (custodian) in the event of your death or in case of the joint death of you and your spouse (if married). You should obtain the consent of that person(s) before executing your will.

If you do not have any minor children, please go to question #15. Name(s):



If at the time of your death the person(s) named above is/are unwilling to serve as guardian (custodian), please list an alternate:




14)Do you want the appointed guardian also to be the trustee (conservator) of any

assets inherited by the minor children?



At what age would you like your children to take control from the trustee of any

inherited assets? (Must be at least 18 years old.)


years old


If no, please list the person or entity you wish to act as their financial custodian. You should obtain the consent of that person or entity before executing your Will.




Please list an alternate in case this person is unwilling or unable to serve:

15) Indicate how you want your assets to pass when you die.

Please check the ONE option you prefer:


I want my assets to pass to my spouse and children as follows:

To my spouse, if surviving.

If my spouse predeceases me, my assets will be divided in equal shares to my children.

If any of my children predecease me, that child’s share shall be distributed to his or her children in equal shares.

In the event my spouse and all of my children and descendents fail to survive me, I want my assets to be distributed as follows:


I am unmarried with children and want my assets to pass as follows:

In equal shares to my children.

If one or more of my children predeceases me, that child’s share in my estate is distributed to his or her children in equal shares.

In the event all my children and descendents fail to survive me, I want my assets to be distributed as follows:


None of the above. I want my assets to pass as follows:

Will Questionnaire • p 4 of 6

For Your


If you own property jointly with another person as “joint tenants with right

of survivorship,” your interest in that property will pass to the survivor upon your death. It will not pass according to the terms of your Will. If you own property jointly with another person without right of survivorship, your interest in that property will pass according to the provisions in your Will.

NOTE: Idaho and Louisiana residents, contact your Provider Law Firm for information particular to your state.


You should know that decisions you have already made regarding title to property will determine distribution of that property in the future. Will provisions cannot alter those decisions. A beneficiary designation is a binding contractual obligation and a Will provision will not alter that designation.

Beneficiary designations in life insurance policies, retirement plans, annuities, bank accounts with a named “Due on Death” (DOD) beneficiary, etc., will determine who receives those moneys upon your death, not your Will.


If you leave to a named beneficiary real/immovable property which is mortgaged, that property will generally pass under your Will to the beneficiary subject to the debt secured by the mortgage.

If you wish to leave the property free and clear of the mortgage debt, you must include a provision in your Will directing the debt to be paid from the other assets of your estate, provided sufficient assets are available.

NOTE: Louisiana residents, contact your Provider Law Firm for information particular to your state.

Your estate could be subject to state inheritance tax even if it isn’t subject to federal taxation. Please ask your Provider Law Firm for further clarification.


The judicial determination of the validity of a Will.

Provider Law Firm’s address, please call their number which you can find in your


electronic membership kit, via the LegalShield mobile app, or by calling Member


Services toll-free at 1-800-654-7757. Use one stamp for each Will Questionnaire


you send in.


They will prepare your Last Will & Testament based on the confidential information


you provide in your Will Questionnaire. If they need additional information from you


while completing your Will, they’ll call you.



Your Provider Law Firm should mail you your completed Will within ten (10) business days of when they receive your completed Will Questionnaire.

Safeguard your Will and make a copy for your executor.

Store your Will in a safe place with other important legal documents. Please remember that you—not your Provider Law Firm—are responsible for the safekeeping of your Will.

*Louisiana & Missouri Residents: Under law, the Personal Representative serves with Court supervision. Certain actions can be taken by your Personal Representative only after obtaining Court approval, including the sale or transfer of any real estate which is part of your estate. However, you can waive certain Court supervision by electing “Independent Administration” of your estate. By electing “Independent Administration” the expenses associated with probate administration may be lessened. However, because there is less Court supervision, there is a greater chance of dishonesty by the Personal Representative and they must secure the service of an attorney on legal questions arising in connection with the administration of the estate.

Do you wish to elect “Independent Administration” for your estate?
