Some people believe that they can write their own will. The problem with writing your own will is that you may not know all the requirements for the document to be valid under Delaware law. The document you create may not pass muster with the Delaware Register of Wills when your estate is probated. Worse, your heirs may find that they have to file a lawsuit in order to get the Court to give effect to what they believe was your wishes. By writing your own will in Delaware, instead of leaving a blessing for your heirs, you may be leaving them with the nightmare and expense of litigation. So if you need a will or trust or other estate planning document prepared, you should seek the assistance of a qualified attorney who handles estate planning.
