Writing a will can be very complicated and that’s why there are professionals to help you. You should only write your will yourself if your wishes are very simple, for example, if you’re married and want to leave everything to your husband or wife, or if they die before you and you want to leave everything to your children. If this is the case, you don’t need to seek a professional, however, if you have step-children or you aren’t married to your partner – you should probably use a solicitor or a will writing service. It’s important that everything is a will is crystal clear, and the more people involved the messier it will be, so again you’ll need a professional will writer to help you. The general message here is to only write your own will if your desires are very simple and your financial situation isn’t complicated.
