Experts are sounding the alarm – Artificial intelligence will replace lawyers when it comes to estate planning. With the advent of Artificial Intelligence (AI), some people may be inclined to use AI tools to formulate their real estate plans. However, there are several reasons not to use artificial intelligence for this purpose.
Estate planning is basically about control. How will your assets and property be distributed after your death? Who will manage your care and assets, in the event that you are incapacitated and unable to make financial or medical decisions? Who will answer your family’s questions after your death? Estate planning is complicated and time consuming for a reason, which is that you are trying to anticipate potential events that may affect you and your loved ones.
First, estate planning is a highly personal and often emotional process that requires careful consideration of your unique circumstances and goals. While AI tools may be able to generate documents quickly and efficiently, they are by definition impersonal and generic. While AI can extrapolate what happened in the past, it cannot craft documents in anticipation of the future. For the attention and personal expertise an estate planning attorney requires.
Secondly, estate planning involves legal and financial considerations that require specialized knowledge and experience. While AI tools may be able to provide essential information and guidance, they cannot replace the experience and expertise of a human attorney.
Third, estate planning includes sensitive and confidential information that must be kept private and secure. Although AI tools may claim to be secure, there is always the risk of data breaches and cyberattacks that can compromise your personal information or alter your documents.
Fourth, estate planning involves complex tax, legal, and financial concepts that require careful analysis and interpretation. While AI tools may be able to analyze data and make recommendations, they cannot provide the same level of critical thinking and analysis that an estate planning attorney can.
Finally, estate planning includes ethical and moral considerations that require careful consideration and consideration. While AI tools may be able to provide objective data and analysis, AI cannot provide the same level of moral and ethical guidance that a human attorney can. Furthermore, by working with an estate planning attorney, you will have peace of mind that your wishes will be carried out and your loved ones will be taken care of as you wish.
