Update and Maintenance of Wills, Trusts, and Estate Plans


Gain an understanding of the proper updates and documentation to maintain wills, trusts, and estate plans.

Effective estate plan documents enable your client to direct the most efficient transfer of assets after their death. They can also address periods of incapacity and long-term care issues. But how do you know which your client needs, and how do you ensure the estate plan remains effective and up to date? In essence, a proper estate plan is very important. However, due to life events, changes in assets, and laws, they can fail if not kept up to date. Therefore, you need to fully understand these documents and what might make them become obsolete in order to effectively counsel your clients.
This topic helps the practitioner understand key events that trigger estate planning updates. This content also explains steps to take in each unique client situation to maintain proper estate planning documents. As a result, you will be able to more effectively counsel your clients. This information is a critical foundation to building and maintaining a successful estate planning practice.
