Why you should avoid do-it-yourself wills

When it is time to draft your will, you might be tempted to just grab a do-it-yourself kit and try to handle things at home. This usually isn't a good idea because it is difficult to condense complex estate planning objectives into a simple document like the ones offered in the kits. There is a chance that your DIY attempt might end up causing you a lot of stress. Ultimately, your will might not achieveo what you want it to accomplish.

What does an executor do?

There are sometimes several people involved with the creation of a will: The deceased, their attorney, their family members, and their friends or other loved ones. All of these people can contribute to making the will a relevant, legally enforceable document. Often, one of these people will play another very important role-- as the executor. 

Why you don't want a will kit

There's nothing more frustrating than having something completed, only to find out it was done wrong when it's too late to fix it. Imagine the severity if it's your last will and testament.
