Creating a will is not the time to short-change your efforts. Wills are hugely important, legally binding documents that can have an outsized impact even if you don’t know what you’re doing. Sure, you could always opt for that free template online, but who knows where that is coming from or if it is even legally binding in your state.
With the wrong approach, you could end up wasting your time or making some huge blunder, jeopardizing the integrity of the decisions that are made and who gets what. After all, the last thing you want is for everyone to end up fighting over the decisions reflected in your will, so it is important to get things right, especially when you’re talking about valuable assets like your worldly possessions, real estate, bank accounts and investments.
