Modifying Your Estate Plan
A good estate plan is meant to withstand the passage of time, and to hold up to legal scrutiny long into the future. However, a lot can change after you have finished signing the paperwork.
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.
At the Law Offices of Karen J. La Madrid, in Riverside, California, we help people modify their existing estate plans or create entirely new plans after various changes and milestones in their lives. We help clients with documents and issues such as:
- Advance health care directives
- Health care planning
- Powers of attorney
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 assured knowing that they have made things easier for their loved ones.
