... but all I need is a simple Will."
I hear these words regularly – “All I need is a simple Will.” Curiously enough, no one who tells me this can tell me what a “simple” Will is (I, myself, do not know), much less why it is all they need. I suspect what they are really thinking is, “If I hire this this guy, he’d better not make things seem more complicated than they are… and overcharge me for something that should be simple!” The ‘skinny of it’ is this – there is only one no-brainer when it comes to estate planning – avoid probate! What most people don’t understand, however, is that your Will is your plan and tool for probate. You need something more than a "simple" Will. The question is, "What?"
