Estate Planning Attorney Raleigh
Maintaining Your Plan
Keeping your estate plan up to date is just as important as establishing your plan. If you have an estate plan but have not updated your estate plan in several years, you may want to consider thinking about the following items:
Your Home State
If you have recently moved to a new state your estate plan may need attention. A change in home state can affect the validity of your will and effectiveness of your other estate planning documents.
A purchase of a new home, birth, death, remarriage, divorce, or estrangement may require changes to your estate plan.
If you owned a business when you initially established your estate plan, changes to the business and new tax implications may need to be considered. If you have acquired a business since you established your estate plan, your estate plan likely needs to be updated to accommodate your current assets.
Your preferences regarding who receives and how much may change over time. If your feelings have changed, you may want to restructure your beneficiary terms.
