QUESTION

Do I need an estate attorney when I can write a simple will myself?

Contact a Iowa Estate Planning lawyer representing clients in Newton, Iowa today to schedule your initial consultation.

ANSWER
While it may look simple, the drafting of a will and other estate planning is actually very complex. State laws regarding estate planning change often, and failure to comply can make any changes void. An attorney with experience in estate planning can help you to avoid making a costly mistake, and keep you up to date on changes in estate law.

Remember: an improperly prepared will is invalid, and can create court battles and expenses that can eat away at the assets you spent a lifetime assembling. It is much better to safeguard your assets by consulting an attorney before beginning the writing of a will.
