Should I Record My Will or Trust?

In short, it is not necessary to record your will or trust these days due to our ability to preserve a copy for you. 

Recording a Will 

Many years ago, the common practice was to record your will for safekeeping in the event that you lost or damaged your original copy. Now with our wide access to copy machines, this practice is outdated and unnecessary. 

Another reason we don't use that service much anymore is because it can be confusing if you need to change your will. You would have to go through the process of updating it with the court. 

Recording a Trust

Trusts are about privacy, so you would never want to record a trust. We wouldn't want to disclose all that information, and then everyone could see it.

Recording a Power of Attorney 

There are times when we will have to record it. We offer a supplemental power of attorney to protect your identity and other sensitive information in these cases.
