I am an estate planning attorney. I agree with everything Wendy Goidel said. I have on a very few occasions advised people that some simple documents are all that is needed. On those occasions I have not charged a fee or have charged a small consultation fee. On many occasions I have had families come in thinking something simple and cheap was needed, if anything, and I was able to save the family many thousands of dollars and ensure that their loved one was cared for the remainder of her life. That is the primary objective: to ensure the loved one is cared for completely whether at home with help, assisted living or nursing home care.
If attorneys were not needed and internet documents would cover your situation there would not be attorneys. I promise you that practicing law is not filling in universal forms. One more analogy: One size-fits-all pants – no such thing. Check out people of Walmart if you doubt me.
