It is important to periodically review your will and estate plan. Life changes often require that you reassess your estate plan.

Children

Most parents are concerned about how their children will be cared for in the event that one or both parents suffer an accident or are incapacitated. It is important to name a guardian for your minor children in your will. Also, parents should consider a trust if they wish to stagger financial inheritance distributions for their children, instead of having the kids receive the whole of the estate at the age of majority.

Divorce

In Oklahoma, a divorce makes any trust that you had with a former spouse void. You should also consider any power of attorney documents or health power of attorney documents so that the contents reflect your current intent.

Remarriage

You may consider signing a ante-nuptial agreement in the event of a remarriage so as to legally separate your estates during marriage. A trust may be helpful in addressing any inheritance issues to children that a second marriage can create.

Middle Age

As people age, their assets tend to increase. Make sure that your money is working for you by talking to a financial planner. In addition, you should make sure that any assets that you acquire are included in any will or trust that you have already created.

Death of Spouse

When a spouse dies, you probably will need to get new health care and financial power of attorney documents.
