Preparing Your Own Will

Many people ask if they can prepare their own will without the assistance of an estate planning attorney. Rarely is a self-prepared will problem free. The requirements for executing a valid will are very specific, and you are also restricted from leaving your money to certain types of people, like a caregiver or the attorney who drafts your will.

If you have never had a will, or you need to update or change your will, you should not proceed without the advice and guidance of a qualified California estate planning attorney. By working with an experienced estate planning lawyer, you will be able to create a valid and enforceable will.

It is important to remember that your will requires a probate! If you want your heirs to avoid various hassles and probate delays, you will need to discuss other estate planning options with our Law Firm.
