Technology has come a long way over the past century. The electric car, the cell phone and even the potential of drones, unmanned planes, delivering items to your home; however, there are some things that might not get as much fanfare. Things that are thought to have changed only slightly, that ‘stand the test of time’. An heirloom grandfather-clock, artwork and perhaps, even the law.
While visiting your attorney, you may have noticed the volumes of law books, placed in an orderly fashion, upon the bookshelves that line the walls. To those of us who are not attorneys, these books might be impressive and a testament of our forefathers, a written history of cases and judgments that are still taught today. Has much changed since they were written? Maybe not on those shelves, but they can change.
So many of us think that once we are handed our shiny new estate plan and walk out the office door that we are done! There is no need for changes or for the plan to be reviewed, because we know that the law has stood the test of time. However, laws do change; congress can make amendments or changes to the current laws in an effort to keep up with the current tax issues, or potential loopholes, in an ever changing world.
It doesn’t take long to have your trust or estate plan reviewed. In fact, doing so can give you confidence in knowing that what you had originally created and your goals can still remain. You may not know what has recently changed, however MH estate planning attorneys are constantly keeping up with the latest changes in the laws and new potential issues that can occur to ensure that your legacy and wishes can be carried out.
