Make Amendments To Your Existing Estate Plan
At Doehring & Doehring, we can help you create new legal documents for your estate, and we can help you amend existing documents to better meet your needs and those of your family. We offer dependable client service and extensive experience in these matters.
Generally, we recommend that clients review their estate plan every three to five years for accuracy or if there has been a significant life change. A major life event like a divorce, a birth or death in the family, or starting a new business could affect your will, any revocable living trusts, durable powers of attorney, and other estate planning documents. A significant life event could also impact your life insurance and retirement plans.
Why Amend Your Estate Plan | Common Changes
Typical reasons for reviewing and updating your estate planning documents include marriage or divorce or a relationship entering domestic partnership or common law marriage. As children come into your family, you may want to consider the guardian you have chosen for them in the event that you become incapacitated. A new baby or adoption, or wishing to disinherit a spouse or child, will also require legal amendments to your previous plan.
Choosing to leave money to a charity, adding a beneficiary, having a blended family, moving to a new state, or having a loved one with special needs can have substantial impacts on your planning for the future. We can work with complex family and financial situations to help you — whether that means amending your will or creating trusts or powers of attorney.
