dc.description.abstractThe majority of Americans do not execute wills, and thus their estates are burdened with rigid and often intent-defeating estate plans imposed by intestate succession laws. In the 1980’s, in an effort to increase the number of residents with customized estate plans, four state legislatures authorized the use of statutory fill-in-the blank will forms. A discussion ensues of the operation of statutory fill-in-the blank will forms, their benefits and disadvantages, and problems and concerns. Next, the author discusses the empirical findings of three studies which were designed to study the ease of use, effectiveness, and legal professionals’ opinions of using statutory fill-in-the blank will forms. Finally, the author reflects on the future of statutory wills.en_US
