It is easy to find just about any DIY legal form you might need on the internet. As such, you might see an opportunity to save time and money by using one of these forms; however, in reality you are more likely to cost your loved ones a considerable amount of unnecessary time and money when it comes time to probate your estate if you forego the advice and guidance of an experienced estate planning attorney. DIY estate planning forms are notorious for having mistakes, errors, and omissions that lead to protracted litigation during the probate of an estate. Your Will and/or a trust agreement will act as the foundation of your entire estate plan. Consequently, you want them created right – the first time. To make sure that is the case, work with an experienced estate planning attorney during the creation and execution of your Will and trust.
