A Will and Trust validly prepared properly executed in state 1 is still legally valid in state 2. BUT as the laws governing filing and operation of the estate of state 2 are different from those in state 1, and the Will would have to be probated in state 2 eventually, is is VERY wise to have the Wlll and Trust reviewed by an attorney in state 2 so that any useful changes can be made.
