The DIY vibes are strong right now. With some things, it will probably work out fine…repaint your old table, change out those light fixtures…you’ve got this.
But some things need to be done right, or there’s going to be a real problem. Maybe stay away from DIY tattoos or rewiring the electricity in your home. And maybe don’t download that “as seen on TV” Will program and think you’re covered.
We’ve received several messages from friends asking about DIY Will programs, wondering if they “work.”
By asking a few simple questions about what they are trying to accomplish, it doesn’t take long to realize that a Will isn’t going to do what they want.
You see a Will is a very specific legal tool that does a limited number of things, and there are a few common mistakes people make when drafting their own will that undermines their wishes.
The problem is that you may not know if it’s the RIGHT tool for you and how your assets should be titled to make it work.
