Good morning. Please allow me a moment to answer your question
Sorry for the delay
The will itself, will be valid, as long as it was properly executed in PA. However, there may be differences in the new state's laws that may make certain provisions of the will invalid. If that happpens, the wishes of the parties could be effected and not carried out, so it is best once the relocation takes place, to simply meet with an attorney licensed in Kansas and have them 1) look over the specific provisions of the will, to make sure there is no issue with carrying those out and 2) making sure the person named in the will as the executor, is still able to. I say this because if it comes time for the matter to go through the court, you want and need to make sure the named executor is willing to go to Kansas to make this happen.
