Important Estate Planning Considerations For Dual Residents

   

               It is quite common for people to have two homes, usually one in New York and one in Florida or some other southern state.  While a will prepared in one state is usually valid in all other states, if done in accordance with the law of one's residency, that is not the case with health care directives.  Each state usually has their own laws and forms regarding  health care proxies and living wills, and is is quite common for institutions not to honor or recognize forms prepared in another state.  This is usually also the case with power of attorney documents, since they are state-specific.  It is highly recommended, then, if one spends a good deal of time in another state, to have a second set of these documents prepared by an attorney licensed to practice law in that state.
