There has been an increase in Americans interested in preparing their wills since Prince died last month without a known will, sending his sister and half-siblings to court to divide up his estimated $300 million-plus estate.
Reuters reports that,
Legal information site Nolo.com has seen a 24 percent increase in sales for its downloadable WillMaker service, 42 percent for its Online Will and 41 percent for its Online Living Trust service. LegalZoom.com has had a 46 percent increase in overall estate planning volume, Rocket Lawyer had a 57 percent increase estate planning activity, and USLegalWills.com saw a 61 percent increase in the number of people completing a will.
Well, I think that this is a good thing.
