Our mission is 'No More Lost Wills.' The Custodius database can be freely searched by any Canadian lawyer. When your client dies their executor doesn't need to remember who their lawyer was, or find-out who that lawyer passed their will bank on to. When they search our database they don't just find when a will was registered - they find the will.

Affordable and Accessible

Many firms underestimate the liability of providing will storage to their clients. When you partner with Custodius, we take on the responsibility for keeping the will safe and secure for the decades until it's needed. 

We provide a succession plan for your client's wills so you know they will be safe for the long-term.

The Old Way

Wills were sent home with clients, where they were lost, stolen, tampered-with or accidentally destroyed.

Lawyers offered free will storage, taking on the costs of fireproof filing cabinets, office staff, and the costs of administering the will bank.

Law firms took on the liability of keeping the will secure for decades, and ensuring they could produce the will when the executor looked for it.

When they retired, lawyers would ask another firm to take responsibility for their will bank...and so on, and so on.

Custodius is the New Way

Wills are stored in secure, fireproof facilities that are optimized for long-term document storage.

Customers pay a single, affordable on-time fee for lifetime storage where their will is easy to find.

Custodius takes on all of the responsibility and liability for keeping the will safe and responding to searches.

The will stays in one place, safe and secure, for the decades until it's needed.

Reduce The Costs

The cost of will storage is paid with a one-time charge dispersed to the client, covering a lifetime of storage and saving you the expenses of fireproof storage, office space, and administrative time.

Reduce The Liability

You no longer carry the liability for storing wills or responding to will search requests. Custodius takes on those responsibilities for you and gives you a more robust succession plan for your client's wills.

Provide Better Service

We offer greater document safety with fire- and pest-proof vaults in secure, temperature and humidity controlled facilities. Our searchable database means No More Lost Wills.

Ann T.
Law Clerk

As a Wills Law Clerk, keeping track of the exact location of every will is very important to me. Registering our clients with Custodius is so quick and easy, and our clients love how simple it is to confirm their information to have their wills stored. Clients also love the email they get once their will is in the vault. Using Custodius is so much easier than trying to manage in-house will storage, and no more responding to will search requests frees my time up to do other things.

Custodius' model for will storage is an elegant solution to a serious problem that many lawyers and their clients haven't given enough consideration. It's better for the lawyer, better for the client, and ensures wills are kept safe in the long-term.

Having Custodius be the place keeping our estate planning materials safe and accessible was the easiest part of the whole process. We found the registration process simple and gave peace of mind that it would support our estate wishes for the future.

Custodius is exactly what I want for my clients. It was easy to implement, I don't have the costs of storing wills, and wills aren't going home with clients to be lost. It saves time for me and my team, and I know I can trust them.
