Writing a will may not be on your immediate to-do list, as settling into a new country can be overwhelming enough. However, preparing for your future and protecting your international assets should remain a top priority. Writing a will is an important task that should not be neglected. But, while the process itself is often regarded as complicated, costly and straight up time-consuming, it doesn’t have to be that way! Here’s how this easy online will writing service in Singapore can take the hassle out of this super important task.
Secure your family’s future
Writing a will is an essential yet often neglected task. However, as an expat with overseas assets, it becomes even more crucial to plan ahead. Without a will in place, your loved ones may face legal complexities and financial strain after you pass. Plus, without a clear directive, your assets may not be distributed as you wish, potentially causing unnecessary family conflicts.
NobleWills understand that your time is valuable, which is why they have created an easy-to-use online will writing service, specifically tailored to meet the needs of individuals. Their service takes the hassle out of the process, so you can focus on what really matters.
With their will writing service, you can:
- choose who will take care of your children;
- decide who will inherit your assets;
- designate who you trust to manage your estate;
- ensure your partner is provided for;
- leave gifts to people or charities of your choice;
- mitigate inheritance and estate tax; and
- plan your funeral arrangements.
Will writing in Singapore made easy
There are many will writing services in Singapore that can help you navigate everything that goes into writing a will. Traditionally, this has been done with a law firm, and may cost over S$1,000 if you are an expat with assets overseas – and that’s before any amendment fees. What’s more, traditional will writing in Singapore usually requires multiple in-person visits, particularly when any changes or updates need to be made.
NobleWills is an online cross-border will writing service that caters to those who are based in Singapore. They make the process quick, easy and convenient, and can assist you with your assets in multiple jurisdictions. Their Advanced Online Will service allows you to write your multiple jurisdictional wills from the comfort of your own home at a fixed fee of S$560 per will (or S$780 for a couple). If you have complex situations, their Premium service offers a personal experience with a Wills Specialist to write comprehensive wills that cater to your unique needs.

Easily update your will with confidence and security
All of your data will be securely stored in your account, so you can log in any time to make amendments to your will. This is useful because, with all of the changes throughout life, you’ll need to update your will accordingly!
With a server system based in Singapore, NobleWills uses three layers of encryption to ensure any information transferred online is secure and safe.
Any updates to your will within the first year are free, after which you can pay a low-fee yearly Editing Membership of S$50 that allows you to make unlimited changes. This is a real bargain compared to the high fees charged by many will-writing law firms!
The supporting documents
Because there is more to estate planning than just wills, NobleWills’ Online Will service includes the following:
- your last will and testament (the document in which you appoint your executor and trustees to mange your estate, and your guardians if you have children);
- a letter to your executors informing them that they have been entrusted with this role, and information regarding responsibilities and next steps;
- a letter expressing your wishes to be kept with your will; and
- a list of your assets and digital assets.
And, just because it’s online doesn’t mean there aren’t real humans to help. All documents are personally reviewed by NobleWills’ will specialists, so you can rest easy knowing your estate plan is not in the hands of bots!
There’s also a Basic Online Will (S$260; S$390 for couples) option, which caters mostly for those who permanently live in Singapore and only have assets in Singapore.
