Legal Tip of the Day – Avoid Generic, Fill-in-the-Blank Online Estate Planning Forms


Unless you're facing an emergency and need documents right this very moment, it's best to avoid the temptation of using generic, online fill-in-the-blank forms for your power of attorney, will, etc. The same goes for those generic, mass-market websites that offer cheap wills and trusts, but which often are nothing but a nightmare to sort out afterwards in Probate Court.


A licensed attorney will be able to create legally sound, effective estate planning documents for you that will accomplish what you want and minimize the headaches if you become unable to make your own decisions, manage your affairs, or pass away.


If you want to build your own estate plan documents online yourself, then choose a solution like our Do-It-Yourself Online Estate Plans. The documents and provisions are attorney-drafted and based on California law, updated with every change in the law, and the estate plans are highly customized to your needs. You can choose to entirely self-prepare your entire plan, or you have the option to have your plan reviewed by an attorney or even entirely drafted by the attorney, based upon your budget and your comfort level.
