DIY wills, trusts may spell trouble

The goal of an estate plan is to ensure that an individual's assets pass to his or her loved ones in the most seamless way possible. One of the worst things that can happen is to have an estate tied up in a costly and lengthy probate proceeding. Unfortunately, this can happen if asset owners in Virginia fail to create wills or set up trusts, or if they do these tasks incorrectly on their own.

Those who have estate plans in place in Virginia are already ahead of the many other individuals who have not created such plans. Although some individuals create wills only, others have taken steps to establish trusts. The problem with those with trusts, though, is that many of them are not reaping their unique advantages.
