Do-it-yourself (DIY) estate planning has gained popularity in today’s society. According to U.S. News, consumers generate a sense of empowerment in tinkering with legal matters on their own. This is because they are lured by “3 easy steps” advertisements claiming cost effectiveness, and guaranteed thoroughness and security. These claims endanger the correct distribution of your estate in the event of your death because online programs are not thorough and are not secure. Relative and friends will find loopholes or sentences up for interpretation resulting in conflicts and disputes amongst your loved ones.
Creating a sound, legal and valid will is crucial. There is no room for play, cutting costs or weak statements when your estate hangs in the balance. Hiring an attorney for legal guidance and logical advice is the best and only alternative to DIY estate planning. Don’t be fooled by false claims.
