How long does it take to prepare a will?

Setting up a will involves two meetings. The first meeting the notary will take instructions as to who you want as executors, beneficiaries, guardians of children and other wishes. The second meeting, about one to two weeks later, is for review of the will and signing. Each appointment is approximately 15-30 minutes in length.
