Online wills are often ‘one-size-fits-all’ documents that don’t take your particular situation into account. Sometimes, they don’t take into account the current laws in your state.

These documents may even be illegal and can lead to problems and misunderstandings among family members, tax losses, costly probate processes, and disputes that last years after death.

By its nature, a will must go through the will system. It’s expensive and doesn’t guarantee that your wishes will be followed.
