Depends upon how big the estate is and there is a nice resource but you have to use the search term National Association To Stop Guardian Abuse and it will take you to a website to tell you how to write your will how to videotape the signing of the will and other legal stuff pertaining to your will and what you will need to include in your will

If you're income qualified, you might be able to get assistance from an estate planning clinic of a local law school.

But if the will is for the individual for whom you're caring, it's a definite conflict of interest.

And unless you have legal background, creating a will yourself is like doing doing your own surgery. There are laws that individuals are completely unaware of that could affect the disposition of assets after the person is dead, and these will create havoc with the heirs, or just as bad, legal and tax issues.

Some folks don't want to pay the money for an attorney, thinking they can prepare a boiler plate form cheaper. That may be true, but they can't handle the problems that could arise from not knowing the legal and tax laws that apply.

As Pam said above, it is better to have an attorney prepare the Will. Otherwise, one misplaced word or left out word would become a nightmare after the fact.

Check with your local council on aging to see if they can recommend a Legal Aid office to help you if funds are an issue to pay for having a Will prepared.

You can get fill in the blank forms online, at an office supply store and many other places. HOWEVER I would caution you against writing the Will if you are the heir to the estate. Better to have it done by an attorney, who is impartial and can notarize the signature.
