A Will is a legal document that spells out what you want to happen to your property and possessions after you die. Many people set up a Will at some point during adulthood but then stash it away — in a lockbox, safe deposit box, or buried in a closet bin believing they will never have to update it.
Estate planning attorneys such as our team here at Kelly & West will also file a copy at the courthouse so that you’re all set. However, there’s one step you might be forgetting: updating your Will.
In general, review your Will every three to five years to make sure everything is still accurate. There are also a few situations in life during which you need to tell your lawyers to make changes to this legal document.
These are just some of the occasions in life when you need to update your Will. Contact us today if you have any other questions about your Will or estate.
