When was the last time you took a look at your Last Will and Testament? If it was five years ago or more, then you should consider dusting it off and reading through to make sure it’s up to date.

Remember, a lot can change in five years: the birth of new family members, marriages and divorces, or even significant changes in your finances are just some of the reasons you should revisit your Last Will and Testament, as well as the rest of your estate planning documents like your Power of Attorney and Advance Directive. If you notice your Last Will and Testament is out of date and you intend to revoke it, you should have a replacement ready to go.

If you want to revoke your Last Will and Testament due to changes in your family’s situation, you should speak with an experienced Davidson County Will lawyer. A Will lawyer can help you figure out the best way to change your estate plan, which will probably involve rewriting your Will, Power of Attorney, and healthcare documents.

Taking a look at your Last Will and Testament, as well as your other estate planning documents, at least every five years is a good habit to ensure your wishes are known to your family and you have the proper planning in place. If you believe you may have a problem with certain family members once you’ve changed your estate plan, you may want to seek the advice of an experienced Davidson County Will Lawyer to talk about your options.
