Is my Last Will from another state still effective in Tennessee?

We get asked this question a number of times each week. The simple answer is

yes, under one condition. If the Last Will was executed correctly, satisfying all

conditions for will execution of the prior state, then yes, the Last Will is effective and

will be recognized as such in Tennessee.

From our view, that should not be the end of the inquiry. If you have recently

moved to Tennessee (or even if it has been several years), you should review your

estate plan to make certain that it still meets your needs as previously set forth. Will

those I have designated to serve as my Executor/Personal Representative be able to

travel to Tennessee to perform their duties? Are my Executor/Personal Representative

capable of transacting business in our digital society today? Will probate in Tennessee

be a hardship for my loved ones? Are any of my beneficiaries dealing with special

needs? Can I avoid probate altogether? These questions, along with many others, are

all relevant and necessary questions to discuss with your estate planning attorney.
