itsmylife LLC (“The Publisher”) attaches much importance to the issue of legal accuracy and takes great care to ensure the data and documents provided by ItsMyLife.com (“this Service”) reflect current law in Trusts and estate planning.
What we provide
This Service enables you to create your Last Will & Testament, Living Will, Powers of Attorney for Health and Finance, and your Final Wishes Funeral Plan so that, in the event of your death or serious illness, you’ll provide for yourself and your loved ones as you wish.
What we don’t provide
We do not provide legal advice. We are not a law firm. This Service is not a substitute for an attorney. If you feel you need legal advice about making these documents, we urge you to consult a lawyer in your State as soon as possible. The American Bar Association website offers a Lawyer Locator service.
Best Practice Guidelines
As a matter of policy, the Publisher adheres strictly to the Best Practice Guidelines for Legal Information Web Site Providers, published by the American Bar Association in February 2003. These are the ABA Guidelines:
1. Contact Information
Sites should provide full and accurate information about the people responsible for the site, including name, mailing address, email address and qualifications. This Service provides a link to About Us including Contact information from every screen.
2. Dating Material
Sites should provide information on when substantive content was last reviewed. This Service provides this date at the foot of each screen.
Where legal content is State-specific, sites should identify the jurisdiction in which that information applies. Where this Service has created state-specific information, the states affected are clearly listed.
4. Limits of Legal Information
Sites that only provide legal information should give users conspicuous notice that legal information doesn’t constitute legal advice. This notice appears at the foot of every screen in this Service.
Sites should provide links to other sites to help users with legal problems. To give users access to information about attorneys in their own State, this Service offers links that enable users to search for a nearby attorney via the American Bar Association’s Lawyer Locator. This also enables users to access each State’s legal disciplinary agency, to ensure that the lawyer they’ve chosen doesn’t have a poor disciplinary record.
6. Legal Citations
When appropriate, sites should provide links to relevant case law and legislation for users who are researching solutions to legal matters. As it’s inappropriate to do so, this Service does not provide these links.
Where appropriate, sites should provide information on how and where to obtain legal advice and further information. To give users access to information about attorneys in their own State, this Service enables users to access each State’s legal disciplinary agency, to ensure that the lawyer they’ve chosen doesn’t have a poor disciplinary record.
If content is sourced from other providers, sites must have permission to use that content – and it must be clear who wrote what. The Publisher owns the copyright for all original information generated by this Service. It also undertakes to obtain permission before reproducing anything owned by another publisher.
9. Terms and Conditions
Sites should clearly and conspicuously show where users can find out about the Terms and Conditions. This Service provides a link to its Terms & Conditions from every screen in the site.
10. Privacy Statement
Sites should clearly and conspicuously show where users can find out about their privacy policies and their policies on security of communications. This Service provides a link to its Privacy Statement from every screen in the site.
