FERPA Release

As part of every Student Plan, GoGo Estate provides a FERPA Release for educational records. See how the FERPA Release works by reading below.

Start Planning

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act ("FERPA") is a federal law designed to protect college students' educational information. Parents cannot access this information without a release from their children. In order to obtain important school records, college-aged students should seriously consider granting their parents authority with a FERPA Release. All GoGo Estate Student Plans come with a FERPA Release.

The FERPA Release states the name of the college or university the student attends, and dictates that the Release will expire upon graduation. This protection allows parents to access records while the student is in school, but as soon as they are out of school, parents will no longer have the ability to access records.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is GoGo Estate a law firm?

No! GoGo Estate does not provide legal services. However, we do provide our customers with self-help estate planning forms drafted by licensed estate planning attorneys.

Why should I use GoGo Estate over an attorney?

The average estate plan costs between $2,000 and $3,000 nationally! This is way too much money, especially since many attorneys "plug-and-play" your information into pre-drafted forms or estate planning software. And while seeking the advice of an experienced estate planning attorney, GoGo Estate gives you access to detailed attorney-drafted forms so you can save up to 70% on your estate plan!

How is GoGo Estate different from other online platforms?

In this everchanging world, we know you have a lot of online estate planning options to choose from. What makes GoGo Estate different is the detailed nature of our plans. We can confidently say that GoGo Estate has the most comprehensive estate planning forms on the internet. Plus, they are all drafted by licensed estate planning attorneys to give you peace of mind.

Can I really plan my estate on my own?

Absolutely! GoGo Estate has countless state-specific resources so that you can know the ins-and-outs of estate planning without having to pay an attorney.  Even better, our estate planning forms are drafted in detail by licensed estate planning attorneys, meaning you can receive the same quality forms you would expect from an attorney at up to 70% the cost!

Will GoGo Estate send me my documents?

Yes! No matter which plan you choose, GoGo Estate will send you printed versions of all of your documents. We ship all of your completed documents to you on the next business day. Of course, if you're in a crunch, you can print them out and have them signed yourself.

How do I go about signing my documents?

Unfortunately, most states do not allow for estate planning documents to be signed electronically. That means that you will have to sign them in front of a notary and (depending) at least two witnesses. Luckily, GoGo Estate provides detailed signing instructions in the first few pages of each document you purchase. While we hope to implement electronic signing in the future (depending on the state), at this time we do not help our customers sign their estate planning documents.

What is "Attorney Support?"

GoGo Estate's Standard and Blended Family Plans each come with built-in Attorney Support. With Attorney Support, you can have a free 30-minute phone or video call with a licensed attorney in your state so they can answer any questions or concerns that you might have.
