The price of filing is included in the cost of our services as outlined here. The wills notice contains your full legal name, date of birth, the date you signed your will, the location of your will and the date we filed the wills notice with Vital Statistics.

Your documents can then be signed and witnessed via videoconference with our lawyer and legal assistant or you may have your Will witnessed by two independent people of your choice.

Existing online will forms offer no consultation with a lawyer and no legal advice. They are simply online versions of a fillable template. Our process provides you with the support of a lawyer to create the same quality of documents you would get in a traditional lawyer’s office without having to make the trip.

Your will is legally binding when signed electronically. If you choose to also have a power of attorney and/or representation agreement, these documents can be witnessed remotely and mailed to you following your appointment or witnessed in-person.

What people say about us

Client testimonials

Bob M.
"We had a will, enduring power of attorney and health care documents done. An initial phone call to gather information, review of draft email documents and the in office witness/signing was very convient. Staff was very easy to deal with, extremely knowledgeable and willing to share best options to meet our needs. Highly recommend."
RJ
"My husband and I recently updated our wills and were pleasantly surprised how smooth the process was. During the initial consult the lawyer, Kyle, answered our questions easily and provided information that informed our next steps. Both Kyle and Sophie, were very patient as we gathered the necessary information to finalize our wills. This made what would normally be a stressful process much easier. Working with Sage Hill Law is time-saving, cost-effective, and low-pressure. Highly recommend."
Starleigh G.
"I tried to book an in person appointment with a lawyer in my area but it was difficult to get an appointment. Then I found Sage Hill Law and they were able to help me virtually. I booked my virtual intake appointment using the form on their site, sent some follow up information, and then had the virtual signing. At one point I had a question so I phoned their office and someone was able to help me right away. I have already recommended them to others because I found this to be a very accessible service."
Veronica
"Kyle is easy to work with, patient while answering questions, and detail oriented. We are very relieved that, with his help, our wills/estates documents are all in order and ready to go whenever we need them. We appreciate the ability to work with Kyle via email and in-person as required."
Brittany and Nick
"Being able to connect with the incredible staff via online, was so convenient. The staff were informative of the process each step, their communication was clear and helped ease the worries of trying to get them done remotely. We are so grateful for how fast and efficient the process was, and would highly recommend their services."
Kay P.
"We signed wills along with a power of attorney and representation agreements. It took a health crisis to prompt us to make an appointment. It was painless. Kyle is not only accurate and efficient, he is also warm and personable. Make the appointment. Our relief at knowing loved ones will be taken care of is immeasurable."
Renate and Geoff
"The service provided by Kyle and his team consists of totally convenient scheduling from their website, ease of being online and virtual saved us office visits and the attention to detail and follow up was reassuring throughout. Kyle listened and advised with care and consideration and made it comfortable for us to talk about our challenges and fears. He gave thoughtful legal advice and made sure he answered all our questions. He walked us through the process and made himself available for follow up questions. I would highly recommend using Kyle and his team."
Melva M.
"Got my new will done....with my new surname..... in a timely, efficient manner. Kyle and Sara deserve praise for their efficiency, intelligence and clear responses to all my queries. The virtual and personal approaches to addressing my issues are a winning combination. Thank you."
