My parents current Will was written 12 years ago, and in said Will are names of people who have since past on..... the way the Will had been written regarding the people listed, the words *their heirs* could be open to interpretation, like finding everyone on all the different family trees... thus heirs my parents never met could inherit some of their estate.
In my parents Will they have each other as Executor of their Will... that was fine and dandy 12 years ago, but today Mom  is legally blind and has lost almost all of her hearing. A second Executor was also listed, the attorney who drew up the Wills.... a general practice attorney. My parents had first used him for their real estate closing. Ok, but where is he today?
For the past year I have been hinting to my parents that they need to see an Elder Law attorney and with State laws always changing it is time to update their Wills, POA, etc. Finally got my parents into see an Elder Law Attorney. But Dad has been moving at the speed of molasses on filling out the paperwork for the Trust, which I agree are complex, it's been four months already.
Finally I decided to have the Elder Law Attorney draw up new Wills, POA's, Health Directives, etc. and leave the Trust for another time. My parents got the drafts of said new paperwork last month.... here comes the molasses again... Dad claims he's been too busy to finish reading the drafts [too busy at 93?]. Keeping my finger's crossed my parents sign all the papers this coming Monday.
Lesson learned, get all this stuff done like yesterday. Last year I updated my legal papers, now I can rest easy on my stuff.... still a basket case regarding my parents.
