Updating Your Estate Plan

You will also need to regularly update your estate plan as your circumstances change.

Any major life event, such as:

  • The birth or adoption of a child
  • A marriage or divorce, a move to a new state
  • Or a substantial change in assets should trigger a thorough review of your estate plan

Even when no major life events have occurred, you should still plan to go through your estate plan every few years. Our Fort Worth estate planning lawyer at The Messerli Law Firm, PLLC can recommend adjustments to your documents and make requested modifications as your priorities evolve.
