Can I create an estate plan on my own?

Arrow icon

While it’s possible to create an estate plan on your own, doing so comes with certain risks. Estate planning is a complex area of law, with guidelines and restrictions that vary by state. A DIY approach might cause you to miss critical legal requirements or fail to protect your interests fully. 

Seeking professional legal guidance guarantees that your plan is comprehensive, compliant with current laws, and tailored to your specific circumstances. An experienced attorney will be able to foresee potential issues and offer solutions that a non-professional might not consider.

How often should I review my estate plan?

Arrow icon

An estate plan should be a living document that reflects the periodic changes that take place regarding your life circumstances, assets, and relationships.

We recommend reviewing your estate plan every three to five years or after significant life events like marriage, divorce, the birth of a child, or a substantial change in financial status. Doing so will ensure that your plan remains relevant and effective and offers the protection and peace of mind you and your loved ones deserve.
