Making a will is one of the most loving things you can do for your family. Because making a will is complicated, it requires the professional legal services of a solicitor (lawyer) to ensure your will is legally valid. While a do-it-yourself will kit might seem like a low-cost alternative to a will drawn up by a lawyer, it might contain or invite errors that could make your will ineffective for communicating your wishes about the disposition of your estate and the care of your minor children, or even create disputes over those matters. Working with a knowledgeable, experienced solicitor can provide greater peace of mind for you and your loved ones.
Complying with Formal Legal Requirements
Your solicitor will work with you to make a will that provides for the distribution of your estate and the care of your minor children. By working with a knowledgeable, experienced estate planning solicitor, you can feel more confident that all aspects of your will get handled in appropriately and that they will stand up to legal scrutiny. Your solicitor will also suggest when to review your will periodically or as your circumstances change.
A Personalized Approach to Your Situation
Do-it-yourself will kits can fail to provide enough flexibility for situational differences that could affect the distribution of your estate and the care of your minor children. By working with a knowledgeable, experienced estate planning solicitor who understands the details of your situation, you can feel more confident that all of those details get integrated into your will, allowing you to enjoy greater peace of mind.
