Why should you avoid a do-it-yourself will?

You may have heard about websites that advertise cheap estate planning tools. This may seem like an easy alternative to making a will with a lawyer. However, there are a number of things to watch out for concerning do-it-yourself (DIY) wills.

Which is better: revocable or irrevocable living trusts?

A living trust is a trust you make during your lifetime, instead of one made on your behalf after your death. Because a living trust is made during your lifetime, there can be many benefits to creating one. However, some of the benefits you receive will depend on the type of living trust you create, so if you are considering including a living trust in your estate plan, one of your first decisions may be if you want your trust to be revocable or irrevocable.
