Think Twice Before DIY-ing Your Will

With the rise of online guides and easily accessible templates, the idea of drafting your own will can seem like a cost-effective option. However, the hidden risks of DIY wills can ultimately lead to significant legal and financial complications for both you and your loved ones in the long run. Getting an experienced Mississippi estate planning attorney to draft your will is worth the investment to ensure your wishes are legally sound, protecting your assets and loved ones effectively.

I am attorney Angela Davis-Morris, and I have more than three decades of experience in crafting personalized and legally binding wills tailored to my Hattiesburg clients’ specific needs and circumstances. At Davis-Morris Law Firm, I provide peace of mind for the future.

What Are The Risks Of A Do-It-Yourself Will?

When you decide to make a DIY will, you expose yourself and your loved ones to potential risks such as:

  • Invalidity due to errors or omissions
  • Overlooking critical details
  • Lack of legal expertise
  • State law variations
  • Varying execution requirements by state
  • Inadequate provisions for complex estates
  • Ignoring tax considerations
  • Disputes among beneficiaries
  • Unintended disinheritance
  • Ignoring changes in circumstances
  • Insufficient protection for minors or special needs individuals

DIY wills seem convenient, but they lack the specificity that you need.

  • Ensure the legal validity of the will
  • Provide personalized guidance

  • Update will as needed
