Document Assembly Software for Wills
DL Drafting Library makes preparation of a Last Will and Testament easy and thorough.
DL is a library of documents. The documents work like templates and are faster and easier to use than document assembly. The language in the forms is state-specific and has been gathered from the leading treatises and law firms. No programming is required on your part. Upload the program, enter your name and address and you can start your first will by answering the questions, which become more sophisticated as the complexity of your prior answers require. And there are helpful tax and related hints that appear as the document becomes more complex.

“Can I use DL Libraries on a Mac?”
DL is a Windows program. To use DL on a Mac you need to enable the Mac to run the Microsoft Windows operating system. You can do so using software packages such as Parallels Desktop, Microsoft Virtual PC or VMware Fusion (and, of course, you'll need a licensed copy of Microsoft Windows). Parallels Desktop is popular. Even without one of these packages you can install Windows on a Mac using Boot Camp which comes on all Macs. Once you have installed Windows on your Mac, you can install DL in the Windows section of the Mac. Instead of purchasing Parallels Desktop and Windows, a lot of attorneys just purchase a PC to run DL and other Windows programs.
