Christmas time is the second most traveled holiday in the United States after Thanksgiving. People are traveling to be near loved ones, friends, family or as a time away for vacation from work or school. Your Estate Plan may only be valid in your own State and not be valid when you are crossing into other States.
You want to make sure that your Health Care Powers, including your Health Care Power of Attorney, Living Will, and Health Care Designation, work in your state and other states. It would not be good to be in an Emergency Room in another state and the hospital deny the legal authority of your chosen Healthcare Agent.
Also you want to make sure that your Revocable Living Trust, aka Living Trust has Mental Disability Planning, so that it will be effective in the event you have a stroke, head injury, or you are otherwise unable to handle your affairs due to mental incapacity. You want the Mental Disability Planning in your Trust to work in your state and other states you may travel to. That can be properly designed and built into your Estate Plan.
