Like Pulling Teeth: Why You Should Go to Your Estate-Planning Lawyer Every Five Years

Professor Michael Yu

Most people have (or should have) an estate plan, including a revocable living trust and pour-over will as well as financial and health-care powers of attorney. If you have not had your estate plan reviewed in the past five years, you should. This lecture will explain why and will discuss a range of circumstances in which careful review of your estate plan is especially important. Among those circumstances are those involving expanded definitions of family — for example, if your child adopted someone, married someone (including someone of the same sex), or has a relationship that, though important to your child, is not legally recognized.
