Is my will too old?

Q. My husband and I had our Wills signed in the 1980s. At that time, we resided in another state but moved to Florida in the early 2000s. Do I need to do another Will? I still want to leave everything to my niece and nephew.

A. Of course, I haven’t seen your Will, so I can’t really advise you about it. However, I want to use your question to focus on a form of that question that I get now and then. Here’s the question: Is there a time when a Last Will and Testament is no longer valid because it is too old? The answer to that question is “no.” A Will is not invalid because of its age. So the thing to look at is whether your Will says what you want it to say, leaves assets where you want them to go and names as Personal Representative (executor) the person or persons you want for that position.
