Will Writer by Enodare has downloadable and online versions of its will-making software. Both are very easy to use with a clean design, well-defined tabs and easy-to-navigate layout. The same features and tools are available with both versions, and each has the ability to help you write your will and other important documents, such as a living will, power of attorney, executor documents and final arrangements for your remains. This program is one of the only will-making solutions that can help you create a foreign will.

Will Writer is one of the few will software programs we reviewed that has sample wills on its website that you can look through to get ideas on information to include in your own last will and testament. If you feel a little intimidated by the thought of creating a will, Will Writer uses an interview-style format that asks you questions then automatically inputs your answers into a final document, so you don't have to worry about writing down anything more than your personalized information.

While this program is easy to work with, the text font used by this program is very difficult to read. And since it doesn't have a spellcheck, the only way to really see what you have typed into the text fields is to preview the document after you've added you information. This can get frustrating when you discover a small typing error and then have to decipher exactly where the mistake is within the text fields.

Unlike the Quicken WillMaker Plus, Will Writer doesn't have a checklist or worksheets to help you keep important information in order while working through your documents. This program does include a glossary of legal terms and step-by-step instructions so you can understand the information being asked and included in your will and why this information is important. You can see your progress as you move through the will-writing process and preview your final document before saving in a Word format or printing in order to have your witnesses sign it, making a legally binding last will and testament.

One area that is rather lean with this program is the help and support for the software itself. We couldn't locate phone numbers or a FAQs section on the website, although email support is available. You can also connect with personnel through the Enodare social media pages.

Will Writer, though it lacks some of the tools of the best will-writing software, such as checklists and worksheets, is a very clean and easy program to work with while your do your own will. It uses an interview format and has sample wills to browse through. It walks you through the entire process, step by step. When you are done with your last will and testament, you can use this program to prepare additional estate-planning documents, such as a living will, power of attorney and executor documents.
