I have seen it plenty of times at senior fairs that I attend, when a person comes up to me and explains that they have all of their estate planning documents taken care of. I’m here to tell you that there are plenty of reasons why you should consider updating your documents. Legal changes for your power of attorney documents over the past five years trigger the need for updates. Other changes in your life that should prompt you to make changes to wills or trusts include: the death of a spouse, a child, or a beneficiary, a divorce or marriage, a move to another state, an inheritance, if your children are no longer minors, the birth of a grandchild, a change in your wealth or your health. Difficult family situations may have arisen over the past years that dictate how someone should receive their inheritance, or you may have changed your mind about who should be in charge of your affairs.
