Do It Yourself Wills Trusts and Estate Plans are in the news and are the subject of debate. Is there a right answer. Yes and No. Isn’t that just like a lawyer.
Can you really do a will on line that is valid in Pennsylvania?
Are will forms valid? Do they work to save taxes?
What if a do it yourself will is challenged?
How much do DIY wills cost?
Is a lawyer worth the extra dollars?
How about Legal Zoom? (the cost by the way was almost the same for a simple will as our lawyers from the Trust, Estate, and Wealth Preservation Section of the firm)
These and other questions are answered in my recent article on do it yourself wills and the battle raging over a Wall Street Journal reporter who used several systems. If you have ever thought about doing your own estate planning, you owe it to yourself to peruse these articles.
Enjoy! And, let me know your comments and questions below.
