Today, your Estate lawyer from Raleigh, NC would like to talk about a factor of estate planning that often gets neglected.
Updating your estate plan might be one of the most important parts of estate planning, as a whole. Often, a proper estate planning is never finished. There are aspects needing occasional updates or changes, often. With tax laws changing, it’s might be hard to create one estate plan and never look at it again. Potentially updating your estate plan should happen at least once a year. Making the updates can be as simple as calling an attorney, such as Eldreth and Eldreth PLLC , and setting up an appointment to review your estate plan with our estate planning lawyers. Below are a few reasons why one might need to update or change their estate plan.
•A change in net worth. Have you acquired a new business or made major financial changes in your current business?
•Additions to the family. Do you now have children or grandchildren that aren’t considered in your estate plan?
•Guardianship or healthcare wishes has changed. Do you wish to appoint someone else to guardianship or healthcare power of attorney, over you or your children, should it be needed?
•Changes in the tax laws. They are ever changing. Are you keeping up? If not, consider allowing Eldreth and Eldreth PLLC to help.
•Changes in your marital status. Are you newly married or divorced?
