Your circumstances and your wishes are not the same as anyone else’s. Specialty software programs for drafting your essential documents cannot fully deal with the nuances of your needs. Estate tax planning and family limited partnerships may also be part of your estate plan. A carefully crafted will and other estate and advance planning documents not only communicate your wishes but will hold up under scrutiny if family members are in dispute.
