Should I Use LegalZoom to Create My Will?
Should you trust your estate planning documents to DIY legal sites like LegalZoom?
Short answer: Probably not.
Every person is different. Every family situation is different. And if you have children, you know that every child is different, too. DIY legal sites don’t understand your unique situation. They can’t provide you with personalized counsel based on years of experience working with individuals and families.
Having access to legal information is a wonderful thing, but it’s incorrect to assume that a one-size-fits-all form will adequately address your own wishes and family dynamics.
When can you trust your estate planning to DIY legal sites like LegalZoom?
If you are unmarried, have a small estate with very few or no assets, and have no children, a boilerplate will may be all you need. In that case, go ahead use the service if you feel like it’s a good fit for you.
But when your situation changes, it’s smart to talk to an experienced attorney who can help you achieve your goals, rather than fit you into pre-written forms.
