We are thinking of writing out a will. we are in NJ and wanted to understand how simple will this process be.
The assets are nothing complicated just a house and personal possessions and savings in retirement accounts and banks. Family is not too complicated either.

Can this be just a simple self-written document kept in a safe place?
Is online a good way to go about it?
Any idea if we go with an attorney what kind of attorney would that be?
Any special clauses to watch out for NJ state?
Any idea of the costs involved if we go with an attorney?
Any idea on how to determine who is a good attorney?

Appreciate inputs based on personal experiences but remember the request is just for a simple will. I do not wish to start a thread for family drama and sordid inheritance tales.
