The Dangers Of Do-It-Yourself Planning
Do-it-yourself estate planning typically involves consultation with dubious online legal sources or purchase and completion of standard estate forms at a “big box” office supply store. Unfortunately, the result of these efforts is a substandard outcome that does not benefit family members the way it should.
Presumably, a person who wasn’t trained in maintenance of a home’s infrastructure wouldn’t attempt to fix a plumbing or electrical problem themselves; or repair a car; or provide their own tech help during computer problems. By the same token, the job of ensuring a family’s future financial security through estate planning should be left to an experienced legal professional — someone with command of the statutes, a grasp of the documentation needed and many years of positive results for clients.
