It may sound like a bargain to create a will or a trust online. But if you make a mistake, it will probably not be discovered until after your death – when it’s far too late to fix it. And a will is only one of the essential estate planning documents a trusted attorney can assist you with. An advanced directive for health care can spare your loved ones a lot of conflict and heartache, and a durable power of attorney can allow someone you trust to pay your bills and do other tasks on your behalf if you are unable to do so.
If you want to make sure your loved ones are prepared and informed on your wishes, have a trusted attorney review your current will and any other documents you have – whether from a DIY website or prepared by an attorney. Some changes in your life and circumstances have legal consequences, and having legal guidance to make adjustments to your will and other documents is imperative to ensure your wishes can be followed.
