How often should you update your will? It's fortunately not uncommon to have someone bring a will in for me to review that may be 20 or 30 years old and that's probably a little too long. What I recommend is every three years let's touch base, maybe it needs to be done sooner but let's touch base and make sure that your will is up-to-date and that it works for you. Because the fact is, if the law changes, your family changes, your health changes or your stuff changes, a plan that we put together for you today may not work for you down the road. So how often do you need to update your will? As often as there's a change in your life.
