Estate Plans are made up from many documents...each of those documents has a different requirement for being updated.
The number one thing to remember is that crossing our and handwriting in changes is almost never a valid way to amend your estate planning documents.
If you need to make changes to your estate plan, I recommend that you seek the help of an estate planning professional.
You can meet with me, Don Rolfe, absolutely free and learn what it will take to make the change you want to your estate plan. Schedule your Estate Planning Strategy Session right here.
