The Affio team is dedicated to making it easy for you to make your will online
The Affio Story
A couple of years ago my wife said that I had to write to a Will. Our daughter was then 18 months old, we had just moved into a new house and I was being told that it was time I got our “affairs in order” (this is where the name Affio comes from).
Like most people of my generation I have been using the internet my entire adult life. I shop, bank, get insurance quotes, watch films, manage investments and keep in touch with my friends online. My affairs are not particularly complex, I thought it would be easy to write a will online and I didn’t see any need to spend hundreds of pounds with a solicitor. So I turned to Google. I found lots of websites but they gave me little confidence in their trustworthiness or ability to produce a decent will and often I felt left in the dark about what was really going on.
It was from this experience Affio was born. Our goal is to make writing a Will – and later other legal processes – clear, simple and affordable for you to do.
