When It’s Time To Update Your Estate Plan
An estate plan is a long-term document. You may create it when you are in your 40s or 50s, and many of its provisions won’t be put into play for decades. However, a lot can change during those years.
Since you signed your plan, you may have had a child, stepchild or grandchild. You may have gone through divorce or remarriage. You may want to modify your will to take note of property you recently acquired or sold.
It is a good idea to review your estate plan every few years to see if it still addresses your needs and those of your loved ones.

Estate Planning Brings Peace Of Mind
When you plan your estate, you make important decisions about your future, your property and the future of your loved ones. In making these decisions, you exercise control over potential health issues in your own life and how you want your property to be distributed after you are gone.
It’s a serious subject, and it can raise issues that are uncomfortable to think about, but we find that many of our clients feel a great sense of relief after they plan their estates. They can rest easy knowing that they have made things easier for their loved ones.
