There are few things in life that you can do once and forget about. If you want your car to run well, you must change the oil and have it serviced regularly. Your teeth should be cleaned annually, and you need a flu shot every year. Likewise, your estate plan is one of those things that needs regular attention.
Creating an estate plan is setting the foundation for your future and the futures of your loved ones. However, just as your normal activity makes it necessary for a dental checkup, the events of life also necessitate a fresh look at your estate planning documents.
