Are new estate planning documents (Will, Trust, Financial Power of Attorney and Advance Directive for Health Care) needed when moving to a new state? If there’s a good chance that your move will prove to be either an extended one or permanent, then it’s probably best to get a new set of documents that would include that state’s legal requirements. For many states, chances are good that your old state’s documents would be valid in your new state, but there could be some potential issues. Consider the following:
Our experience is that family situations and life events require updates to the documents more often than changes in the state of residence.
Good news, it’s usually better to have some estate documents in place then none at all, and you have that! Once you’re settled in, Bryson Law Firm, P.C. recommends consulting an estate planning attorney in your new home state.
