(Not) Using WillMaker in Louisiana

Question

Why can't I use WillMaker if I live in Louisiana?

Answer

Unlike the other states' laws, Louisiana law is derived from Napoleonic code. This makes Louisiana estate planning law very different from the laws of the rest of the country and WillMaker doesn't address Louisiana's unique requirements.

Louisiana residents may find some of the forms and much of the information in WillMaker generally useful.  But when it comes to making binding legal forms, Nolo can not guarentee that they will be valid in Louisiana.  If you live in Louisiana and you need to make a will, durable power of attorney, or health care directive, see a Louisiana lawyer for help.
