DH and I recently moved from another state where we had our wills drawn up. They are outdated and need to be redone, but I've heard it's important to get your will done in the state you live in. The kicker is that we moved to different states and are shuttling back and forth. Further he will be joining me at our retirement home when he finally decides he's done working.

I suppose it's less critical for wills since those are individual anyway, so we could do one in each state, but is it that big a deal if he just has his will drawn up in my state of residence? He will join me in a couple of years or even much less if this commute thing is not tolerable. More important is the family trust we are looking into drawing up. How do we do that when our primary residences are not in the same state, but we are wanting to do this as a couple.

Seems archaic to me that in such a mobile society we can't just have one will/trust that follows us over state lines.
