Every adult should have a will, even if only to make end of life wishes clear. However, merely having a will does not offer the full range of benefits that a person can enjoy. It is also important to keep a will updated regularly to address any life changes that may affect the will.
If you recently experienced a significant life event and already have a valid will, you should review the document to make sure that all of the information within it and the wishes that you lay out remain relevant to your circumstances. If you do not, you may find that your will creates conflicts for your loved ones and beneficiaries after you pass away.
It is always wise to consult with an experienced estate planning attorney who can help you assess your circumstances and keep your will updated and comprehensive. An experienced estate planning attorney can advise you about potential conflicts that your will may create for others, as well as help you protect your own interests.
