While people and the media often focus on big picture mistakes, it turns out that small errors are the biggest problems in estate plans, according to the Pauls Valley Daily Democrat in "Oversights can cost your heirs money."
For most people, minor mistakes such as not having enough witness signatures on a will or not having the appropriate legal language in a trust document are what makes estate plans go awry. The law can be extremely formal at times and minding all of the little details matters.
If things are not done precisely right, then all the proper planning in the world can be undone with a simple mistake.
Fortunately, there do not have to be any minor oversights in your estate plan. An experienced estate planning attorney can guide you through the details of creating a suitable estate plan that meets your unique circumstances.
