    I'd appreciate guidance about drawing up a new will. For someone with little to leave behind, can free, downloadable forms that are notarized be just as binding as those provided by an attorney?

    Absolutely. You can write a will on a napkin and it would be legal. Along with a will you should have a living power of attorney for what to do if you are ill and can't make decisions and a power of attorney for health and financial matters. Good luck.

    Thanks, Birdrescuer. I will search for those, too.

  4. Myr-myr: note that the will must be in writing and you must have two witnesses who aren't getting anything in the will present for your signing of it.

    See http://apps.leg.wa.gov/rcw/default.aspx?cite=11.12.020

    Yes, get your Advance Directives defined in your living will in case you should become incapacitated or need end-of-care care/decisions. This info is online too and varies by state.
