Are Online Wills Effective?
Every year, thousands of consumers bypass lawyers and create their own wills, powers of attorney, and other estate planning documents with the help of online tools and books. As one might expect, lawyers don't like this do-it-yourself approach. They say it breeds mistakes, since when it comes to legal issues, one size never fits all. Do they have a valid point, or are they just trying to protect their own livelihoods? People tend to make mistakes when they fill out their own forms online. People might get a false sense of security from DIY estate planning, Answering one question incorrectly or overlooking something such as appointing a guardian for children can lead to major problems down the road. However, if you do not have any significant interests or assets you wish to protect and distribute, online tools may work. Sagaria Law does recommend that you at least have a lawyer review the final document, so call us today and let us help make sure your future wishes will be carried out.
