Surprise, AZ asked in Estate Planning for Arizona

Q: I have a question about a Trust

My husband and I got a Trust many years ago and we were living in California at the time. Since then my husband passed away (2000) and I moved to Arizona to be near my children. Do I have to do anything to the Trust, now that I live in Arizona?

Thank you for your help.

A: Moving from one state to another does not necessarily mean the trust needs to be updated. That being said, an attorney would need to review the trust and your circumstances before giving any advice as to whether any further action on your part would be needed. I recommend that you contact an estate planning attorney soon to go over your trust and your current situation. Best of luck!
