    Default Can I Change My Estate Plan By Myself

    My question involves estate planning in the state of: South Carolina. I did a will, poa, living will, and medical directive on Legal Zoom. I need to make changes to the executor, poa, and person responsible for medical decisions. Can I do this myself and have it notarized or must I go to Legal Zoom and make the changes there? I will have to pay in order to make the changes online. If I can legally do this myself I'd rather do it that way until I absolutely must revise it online.

    You don't have to go back to the site you used to create the documents. You can retype the documents with the corrected information, and (properly) execute the new documents. You may want to clearly void the old documents and keep a copy of the voided documents with the new ones; that can help clarify your intentions if a copy of the old document turns up in somebody else's hands. (That's only apt to be an issue if you've distributed copies of your estate plan.)

    I understand. I thought maybe I could do that but was unsure. I've not distributed copies to anyone yet so that makes it much easier. Thank you for the help.
