Will Your Heirs Know Where to Find Your Assets?

A big problem for anyone trying to wind up an estate can be simply finding all the property and valuable papers. You can do your heirs and executor a favor by filling out this form and giving copies to your spouse, other relatives who will help in settling the estate, any outside executor and your lawyer. Update the list periodically.

NOTE: This form is confidential and all data you enter will remain within the boundaries of your computer terminal. It does not involve the use of any c.g.i. (common gateway interface) programs, but instead implements serverless JavaScript code. If you have any questions regarding this matter, you may send a message to, or simply download the source file and fill out the form while offline (you can still produce the same form results).
