3 Reasons to Avoid Online Forms for Wills and Estate Planning | Law Technology Today. Online Wills are becoming more popular. They are less expensive than hiring a legal professional; but, they have drawbacks. When I do estate planning for clients, I provide more than a Will. I give advice about Advanced Health Care Directives, and the current state of the law in Florida, and help them decide how they want end stage life conditions handled. I provide information about the advantages and disadvantages of Durable Powers of Attorney. I discuss the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and the current state of the law of medical information security. I discuss the forms of wealth and asset transfer that are exempt from the probate process, and why a coordinated look at all assets is desirable. Before you click the keys at an online site, ask yourself the above questions, and seek out someone who knows the answers. While I am on the subject, consider storing your information online, at a site like EstateMap.
