Estate Planning for snowbirds can be a bit different than planning for the non-snowbirds. Because snowbirds reside in two (or more!) states during the year, it is important to check whether your estate planning documents fit the rules of both states. Your Will and other legal documents should be valid no matter how you divide your time. However, it is important to make sure your General and Healthcare Powers of Attorney follow both states’ rules. If one state requires only that the form be notarized and the other requires two witnesses plus a notary for a power of attorney, it is best to follow the rules of the stricter state.
