You could buy the one in the link you posted for PC and run it off your mac with windows, XP, or Vista installed.Mac Pro Dual 2X3.0, 5 gigs RAM, 1 TB Raid Drive, FCP 6.0.1, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

I marked your post as "Helpful", so at least you get a little + reinforcement (points) from Apple for your reply.
It's a big world, so just maybe someone else might know of an app that would help us both (et al.).
Thus, for now, leaving the post "Unanswered", and we'll see what (if any) news we may learn from others.
Thanks again, and Aloha,

Currently Being ModeratedMay 6, 2008 4:00 PM (in response to Honolulu Johnny)Hi Johnny:
I get no commission, but I used forms from Standard Legal:
I downloaded what I wanted and then filled in the blanks. The process seemed pretty easy, and it was more than a few bucks cheaper for a very simple situation.
I did not use it on-line (if that is an option). I prefer to work at my own pace.

Currently Being ModeratedMay 6, 2008 4:43 PM (in response to Honolulu Johnny)I was checking through my old softwares and found this HOME AND BUSINESS ATTORNEY which is sold by Tax Cut.
It's 2003-2004 and outdated. But to my surprise, it works pretty good.
You can buy it here:

Currently Being ModeratedMay 19, 2008 10:40 PM (in response to Barry Hemphill)Thanks very much, Barry.
As with Scott, I've marked your post as "helpful." I sincerely appreciate the effort, because these downloadable forms would work, and be more cost-effective than preparation by an attorney.
The remaining issue, though, is their comparatively higher cost for a stand-alone, single purpose document. As mentioned in original post, looking for a Family Lawyer-like DIY app that offers a full range of template legal documents for a one-time, considerably lower cost.
For example, at standardlegal.com, the Living Will template is $14.95. However, Broderund's (windows-only) Family Lawyer app is only $19.99, and provides a fairly wide range of template legal documents. For $39.99, they offer another similar (windows-only) app, with a wider variety of documents.
Again, though, thanks very much.
There's no doubt that things are much better than they used to be for Mac users when it comes to software availability. However, I think we all still know how it might feel to own a Rolls Royce (okay, for political correctness, a hydrogen fuel cell BMW), but only be able to drive it on a limited network of roads. Come to think of it, kind of like driving here in Hawaii (an island).
P.S. Scott, I'll be responding to your new post above as soon as time permits.
