Reviewing Your Estate Plan After an Out of State Move – Q&A With J. C. Highsmith, Jr.

Q: Are the estate planning documents I signed while living in another state still be valid now that I’ve become a Georgia resident?

A: Probably- But trying to use non-Georgia documents in Georgia will likely be very difficult. Each state’s laws differ, sometimes significantly, from the law of the other 49 states. For that reason, it is best for a Georgia resident to engage a good Georgia Trust and Estate lawyer to assist in signing Georgia estate planning documents that have been prepared in accordance with Georgia Law.
