What's New in WillMaker 2019

Each year (and throughout the year), Nolo's expert attorneys thoroughly review and update WillMaker, making legal updates and adding new features so that WillMaker continues to stay current and get better over time. Here are the highlights of the changes made for the 2019 version.

The biggest change to the program this year is the addition of Nolo’s popular and time-tested living trust. The trust now lives inside of the software, so no need to use a code or go online to make your trust.

The 2019 version is now available for purchase.
