Additionally, the cost may not just be monetary - a Do it Yourself Will may destroy your family’s relationships. When your loved ones probate your Will upon your death, it should be a blessing to them. A Will provides gifts of your property to those you loved during your lifetime. But if you prepare your own Will without the assistance of an attorney, your Do it Yourself Will may end up splitting the family.You may be thinking, “Not my family.” That’s exactly what one of my clients thought before her grandmother’s death. But after six and a half years of litigation over a house and a vehicle, she is saddened that her family has been fighting ever since her grandmother died. In another case, my client’s father purchased four $50 Do it Yourself Wills for himself and his three daughters.

When the box arrives with the toy, you don’t own the correct tools to put it together, you don’t have all the parts, and you don’t know what its supposed to look like when its done. If you try to assemble the toy, you immediately discover that you should have paid the extra charge to have the store put it together. But with a Will, it is only after you are gone, that your family discovers the problems.A Will is used to designate the individuals who will inherit the proceeds of your entire lifetime.
