Many people are in a state because of work responsibilities. When the time comes for them to retire, they have to move from one state to another to enjoy their retirement years, or they wish to be closer to their families.
Whether you are moving to the next state or to a further one, you need to review your estate plan.
A will that you set up in a different state might not be valid in another, which is why you need to work with an estate planning attorney to come up with a better version.
If you came up with a trust, you must have stipulated the law to govern the trust. Therefore you need to come up with a new one to revoke the previous one.
Amending the estate planning documents in a different state can be a tough task to do, which is why you need to have new documents prepared if they don’t conform to the laws in the new estate. This will make sure the documents don’t have conflicting provisions regarding which law to govern them.
