The last will is the most commonly utilized estate planning instrument. However, just because it is a document that everyone has heard of does not mean that it is simple to construct your own will.
Because we live in the digital age we are constantly being inundated with sales pitches online. There are websites out there that will sell you downloads and worksheets that you can utilize to put together legal documents.
The salespeople tell you that you can arrange for the transfer of all the things that you’ve accumulated throughout your life to those that you love the most by using one of their generic forms.
Buying into this type of thinking is a mistake, and we explain why in our free report. To obtain your copy of this valuable, professionally prepared report on the dangers of DIY wills click this link and complete the form that you will see in the right-hand corner of the page:
When you read this report you will learn about the realities of probate. Your estate is not administered in a vacuum after you pass away. The validity of the last will is determined by the probate court, and the court supervises the administration of the estate.
