At first glance, do-it-yourself forms seem to be an appealing way to protect yourself legally. For less than $100 you can get a form for just about any need from real estate deeds to structuring a new business to estate planning. Online forms may ask you a few questions and build a legal form around your response. You print it, attempt to complete it, and maybe sign it. With the form now tucked away in your filing cabinet, you may think you have the proper legal protection. The only way of knowing you are adequately covered is in the unfortunate event that the document gets tested.
