Estate planning is an important part of our lives. Even as that's the case, we still fail to make sure our estate plans are up-to-date with life changes and more. When that happens, our documents become invalid. At our death, our wishes might not be carried out as we expected them to.
Instead of this happening, it's important to update your estate plan with an attorney in Raleigh NC present, at least once a year. If not, once every two years will be beneficial, as well. Waiting more than that might might be a good idea.
Over the course of the past several blog posts, we've taken time to talk about all the various changes and updates that might need to be made over the course of your lifetime. Today, we continue offering tips to help you.
Have you updated your plan since 2003? If not, you’ll probably have to sign a new one. HIPPA compliance rules and regulations changed in 2003 and those that have healthcare directives within their estate plan should make an appointment to get these changes taken care of.
If you’re worried about whether your estate plan reflects necessary updates and changes, contact our estate lawyer in Raleigh, soon. We are here to walk you through each step of the process so that everything is recorded and changed, without worry.
