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.
“Reggie Kelly is a fantastic attorney with fantastic paralegals. My wife and I have been using him and his firm since 1983 when we first purchased property in Harnett County 37 years ago. He offers excellent legal advice and guidance. He never gets in a hurry to get us out the door because of his next appointment. He always takes the time needed to check out all of the issues that might come up. Reggie Kelly is a proud American and he loves our country and he wants everyone to do well. Reggie Kelly is an even finer person than he is a fantastic attorney and we are very fortunate to also be able to call him and his wife Cheryl our friends. We give him a 10 STAR Review!”
