The big advantage of having a lawyer help you prepare a will is peace of mind. Wills are fairly complex legal documents that have tremendous legal significance. After a person dies, there is no opportunity to redo a poorly drafted or improperly witnessed will. While you will not be around to feel the consequences of a poorly prepared will, your loved ones will be left behind to deal with the mistakes which may cause them severe stress and extreme financial loss.
Having a lawyer help with the writing of a will reduces the likelihood that your executor(s) will have to face legal challenges to the will. As well, when a lawyer assists with the preparation of a will, the content of your will is more likely to adequately provide for your beneficiaries.

Dear Russ,
Thank you for bringing up the topic of wills. it's not uncommon for people to avoid making one- after all not many want to face the reality and inevitability of death.
Apart from the convenience a will can cause to the grieving survivors, a well drafted will can also prevent a lot of litigation. I can vouch for the Indian scenario and it's dismal. The backlog in our courts is tremendous and most part of pending cases relate to inheritance and/ or property matters.
Use the services of a lawyer. After all, hiring one to draft a will is preferable (and even less expensive) to appointing one to fight your cases later.
A stitch in time!
P.S.- Russ, I look forward to hearing more from you on this platform. I am optimistic about increased and evolved participation from other members. Would require some patience, I believe!

While other forums like Cite HR, Cite Finance and Cite Sales are actively participating in discussions, this Cite Legal forum is lagging behind.
It may be due to tight schedule of practicing lawyers. Let us create a new trend and invite all our members to take active participation in this forum, which will help in creating awareness as well as developing knowledge within us.

Dear Bhaskar,
You are absolutely correct with your observation about the trend of discussions on vis-a-vis all the other websites on our network.
While lawyers' hectic schedules must be one reason, I am afraid their reluctance to share ideas and experiences could be the other (perhaps larger) one.
We are hopeful that we shall be able to turn things around. Such that lawyers and law students alike will realise the usefulness of having a platform wherein they can give and receive help with only the idea of sharing and helping. Members on our most popular website citehr have realised how beneficial it can be to have ready solutions on days when one is pressed for time and cannot afford to study up or exercise their grey cells. All they need to do is log on and "reSearch"! Imagine the implications of such a resource freely available to lawyers!
Members are advised and even encouraged to create anonymous login IDs to prevent work related issues.
