Q&A - Should an Out-of-State trust be reviewed?

As a general rule, Wills and Family Trusts created in other states do not need to be revised when a person moves to Idaho. Idaho recognizes wills and trusts from all other states regardless of whether they were drafted and signed with the same formalities required of trusts created in this state.

So, unless you have specific changes that you would like to make to your Will or Trust — for example, changing beneficiaries, Trustees, or Executors — there should be no need to have those documents reviewed simply because you have recently moved to Idaho.
