Trust/Estate Plan Review
Did you recently relocate to Arizona from another state? An essential part of this move is to remember to have your estate plan reviewed by a qualified estate planning attorney in your area. Mahoney Law Office frequently reviews estate planning documents for clients who have moved to Arizona from other states to ensure that the documents comply with Arizona law.
Within your estate plan, two important items that should be reviewed in Arizona are your health care and financial powers of attorney. Health care directives should be redone using the laws of the state you have moved to because many states have distinct statutory forms which medical professionals are accustomed to relying upon. The same questions may arise if your financial power of attorney does not meet Arizona’s requirements. The best time to have these documents reviewed is now - prior to you becoming incapacitated and the person you have chosen to act on your behalf being unable to use them.
