don't be penny-wise in drawing up a will

Will alternatives My husband and I wish to leave everything to our daughter. We are thinking of using of those printed forms from a stationery store as our will. Is this adequate? We have no debts but will leave a house, two cars, stocks, and personal property. The printed forms leave little room for itemizing, and I can't type it without errors. How do I handle erasures? -- C. K.

While a properly executed stock will might suffice, why take a chance? Along with the language, you must have the will and your signatures witnessed properly for legality. With legal clinics now available, the cost of preparing a simple will is minimal. Drawing a will is important enough to seek professional advice , particularly with the cost so reasonable.
