Each friend or family member must have their own Tomorrow account in order to complete their legal documents. You cannot complete someone else's documents in your own Tomorrow account.
Not only do we encourage conversations with family and trusted friends about your financial and legal planning, we encourage you to connect with them through the Tomorrow app. You can, with their guidance and permission, assist them in creating their own Tomorrow account to draft documents in their name.
A common question we receive regards a "joint will." We would not advise using a joint will. A joint will can limit the surviving spouse’s options during his, her or their lifetime. For example, if the joint will provides for a distribution of the specific family home at the end of the surviving spouse’s life, the surviving spouse may not be able to sell the home during his, her or their lifetime even if it would make financial sense to do so.
A joint will can only be revoked or amended by both parties so after the death of the first spouse, the surviving spouse cannot make any changes to the will, or can only make changes with approval from the court which could take a significant amount of time and money and could be very complicated. Being unable to amend the document be problematic as circumstances could change significantly after the death of the first spouse. Suppose the will provides that the estate goes to a specific charity after the death of the second spouse, but that charity goes out of business before then, the surviving spouse will not be able to amend, or it will be very difficult to amend, the will to provide for a new charity.
Finally, joint wills are not allowed in all states.
