Generic Legal Forms Fall Short - With Serious Consequences

By Lawyer Referral Service | Apr 04, 2014

People sometimes ask us why they can't just use a generic will template they bought online instead of paying an attorney draw up a will. We tell them they can, but it will be a gamble. The language of wills is very specific state to state. So even if you think your situation is simple and a simple form should do, a missing phrase or word can leave chaos behind you.

The Florida Supreme Court just proved the point - that the cost of consultation with an attorney may make the difference between what you leave going to the people you intend, or creating a fracture in your family that will be expensive to resolve and impossible to heal.

Read the latest at the Florida Supreme Court Blog. Then call the Lawyer Referral Service to find an attorney who can advise you on how to write your will so that it all plays out as you intend.
