MYTH: “I can do it myself”
FACTS: This is possible, but not advisable.
A single small mistake in making your own will can be disastrous, and don’t forget, you won’t be around to clarify things. Any mistake you make won’t be discovered until after you’re gone and it’s too late to correct.
Family conflicts and arguments may make preparing a Will a stressful process.
Challenges to your Will and your estate may be more likely to occur, and be more likely to succeed, without an independent professional to create your Will for you.
Questions about your health and capacity could be raised after you’re gone, to cast doubt about your testamentary intentions.
If you have used the services of an experienced specialist lawyer to create your Will for you, such issues may be minimised or avoided.
Similarly, a professionally -prepared Will is less likely to challenge on the ground that you were acting under the undue influence of a gold digger.
Some people assume that a verbal agreement as to how their assets are to be distributed is sufficient instead of having prepared a valid Will. This is likely to be very difficult& expensive to prove without having any testamentary intentions in writing.
