WHY NOT USE A FORM AVAILABLE ON LINE OR IN A FORM BOOK TO PREPARE A WILL?
There are certainly free forms available on line otherwise including inexpensive kits to prepare a Will so why hire an attorney and spend money, right? The form may not truly reflect your wishes or needs even if it seems easy to complete. A Will , if correctly witnessed to function as a Will , is a legal document with major significance to you family and your making a mistake as to the legal significance of the language in the Will or being insufficiently clear can cost many thousands of dollars in legal fees. If you do not have an attorney explain the terms of the Will and are not informed of the laws of intestacy or law concerning non-Probate assets, you could be undermining your own goals and you would potentially also lack a witness to your thought intent, if needed. Ask yourself, is it worthwhile making your Will invalid or susceptible to the laws of intestacy in your jurisdiction or the subject of a declaratory relief actin for interpretation by the Court.
