Today’s society is all about do-it-yourself.
There’s DIY magazines, television shows and of course, the big home improvement stores that show you how to do everything from repair a leaky faucet to adding another room onto your home.
But when it comes to planning your estate, this is one area you don’t want to go alone.
Estate planning can be complex. There are a variety of legal documents that you may or may not want to use and what’s more, the laws that govern those documents can change at any time.
Different concerns will require different approaches, so someone with a large estate and children from multiple marriages for example, will probably need a different estate plan than someone who’s single or someone who owns several businesses.
And even though there are a number of do-it-yourself forms available, these are generic in nature and cannot anticipate all the people, aspects and situations that make your estate unique.
Also remember that estate planning isn’t just about distributing your assets but it can also ensure your children and grandchildren are provided for, protect the family pet, guard against disability and even create a legacy that will last for generations to come.
Is that really something you want to trust to a form you downloaded from the Internet?
