There are a plethora of options available for those wanting to prepare an estate plan with legal software, or an online legal software system. In fact, there are a number of well known personalities who sell their legal software “products” at your local bookstore. There are some online services who would have an interview with you then they would ask you whether you would choose will or trust, and it usually lies on the cost of the attorney.
In preparing a will or a trust, there will always be some advantages and disadvantages in using such system, thus, it is always important to weigh their pros and cons before you get to decide whether you will pursue the said process or not. It is also important to weigh all the benefits that can be gained in purchasing a legal software CD from your local bookstore rather than hiring your personal attorney that will do the job for completing your estate plan. The advantages if pursuing the said process will be discussed in this article.
The first benefit is that, you do not need to prepare huge amount of money in order to get started. To use a legal software system you only need a computer, a printer, and some time. The average startup cost of an online legal service or software purchased from the bookstore is substantially less than the cost charged by an attorney.
Another advantage of pursuing an online legal software is that, it would definitely save you a lot of time. Obviously, the advantage of time savings will vary from person to person. If ever you are working with a computer which happens to be very slow, then the advantage of saving time could be non evident. But, if you can use your computer faster than what it should be, then you can definitely save time.
You don’t always deal with the consequences. This type of advantage is evident for some user of an online legal software system. This is indeed evident since there are some people who do not care at all about the different consequences. In life, if you screw up a do-it-yourself plumbing job and end up hiring a plumber to fix the mess, you are forced to deal with the consequence. If you try to fix the head gasket on your car and end up having your car towed to the garage to complete the repair (often at multiples of what would have been the original cost had you drove to the shop in the beginning), you must deal with the consequence.
