Forget PC Attorney!

February 27th, 2007 at 01:17 am

I finally found the copy of PC Attorney that we picked up a few years ago. The install instructions didn't even list Windows XP so it's pretty old. It was on the $10 rack at Best Buy so I wasn't expecting much.

I was still disappointed.

Yikes. There are choices for "simple will -- all to spouse" and "create trust for children", but the children's one doesn't even have you name a guardian! Come on, that's really basic! There's no choice allowing you to leave it all to your spouse and then only if the spouse dies, leave it to the children.

I guess we're going to need a lawyer. My orignal will leaves everything to a living trust, and the trust goes to DH and then to children. I even have a clause that I like that says they get 1/3 at ages 25, 30, and 35. I just need to change the executor and guardian. Surely that won't cost as much as doing a new will from scratch. DH doesn't have a will -- do you think we should have him fill out the simple will just to have something until we find a lawyer? (I don't want to go back to my original lawyer because he was so sloppy.)

    You know I had done the Quicken Will thing and then we saw a lawyer and I am SO thankful. There were just so many little insights she had, that Quicken did not cover. Just as an example, we put SIL & her hubby as guardians. She asked us if we would still want him as guardian if something happened to SIL. Well, really no - LOL. A lot of little stuff like that popped up that I would never have thought of. IMO it is worth the money to get a real lawyer.

    In the meantime though, it probably wouldn't hurt to set something up yourself while you shop around. I am not sure I would feel so gung ho but we only paid about 1/3 market value because she was a friend - phew.

    You know I agree, it is probably best to see an attorney
