Why Creating a Will Online Without an Attorney Costs More in the End

| Apr 21, 2020 | Firm News |

You get what you pay for. There are too many times that people use online estate planning because they think the online program saves them money on attorney fees while still covering all their needs. Unfortunately, there are too many times that these online estate plans create problems on the backend. If somebody dies or if there is a disability or some triggering event, the documents created from online programs do not work the way the person wanted, creating great frustration and increased costs to fix the will.

Everyone benefits from customized legal advice. Even if you use an online program to create an estate plan, you should still have a lawyer review the documents.

We serve clients with above-average net worth, average worth, and below average worth. Even if a person does not have much in assets, a will created by a lawyer is helpful to make sure loose ends are tied up. Everybody needs help planning with estate planning because everyone has something that needs taking care of.

Wills can be used to assign executors and personal representatives to carry out your wishes, to protect individuals with special needs, to nominate guardians for minor children, and to protect beneficiaries who may be immature, financially irresponsible, or at risk financially. Contact our office today to schedule a consultation to determine how we can you or your loved one’s estate planning matter.
