Any time you would like to access information about any facet of estate planning, we invite you to visit our website. We have accumulated a rather extensive digital library of free special reports that cover all areas of estate planning and elder law.
One of these reports examines the dangers of DIY estate planning.
There are websites out there that sell generic legal documents including estate planning devices.
There are things that can go wrong when you use a download or worksheet to create a last will or a living trust. In fact, researchers from Consumer Reports magazine probed the matter last year and recommended against do-it-yourself estate planning.
When it comes to wills, you have to understand the fact that the probate court will determine the validity of any will that is presented. Each jurisdiction has its own guidelines. A generic fill-in-the-blanks document may not be entirely appropriate for every jurisdiction.
The wise course of action is to have your will constructed by a licensed attorney who understands the nuances of the local probate courts here in Northern California.
To understand all of the dangers that exist when you decide to go it alone using a download or worksheet that you obtain from an online marketer, access our free special report on the subject.
The report is available to our readers absolutely free of charge. When you reach this page simply follow the instructions to gain access to the download: The Dangers of Do-It-Yourself Wills and Living Trusts.
