    I am currently working for a big company as a funeral consultant, now we have become estate planning consultants with very brief training, however they’ve announced imminenet redundancies, so ive decided to go independent and study to do this professionally so my question is ,how, when, and how much will it be to take an exam in will writing, and also to provide other legal services, I will only be taking instructions , I guess, and then ill be affiliated to a member I guess, id love some advice thanks,

I will send you our information pack via email which will give you information as to the costs associated with each approach. I would be more than happy to schedule a call after to discuss this,
