What is the difference between a will and a trust?

A will is a document that dictates what should happen to your belongings after you die. A trust is a document that appoints someone to manage your assets for you during your lifetime. When you die, the trust assets pass directly to the beneficiaries named in the trust, bypassing probate.

When is it important to change your estate plan, and what's the process for doing so?

If you have recently had a major life change, such as a birth, death, or divorce, it is important to update your estate plan. The process for doing so will vary depending on the type of estate plan you have. If you have a will, you may need to create a codicil, or amendment, to modify your will. If you have a trust, you may need to create a new trust document.
