How wise of you to do a little estate planning, which is really just thinking ahead some times.  No, you do not need a new Will.  A Will that is valid and validly executed in one state is valid in every state. But it may be a good time to rview the Will and see if there are any changes that you may wish to make.  Like if you are moving and selling the house and the house is named in the Will, it may be a time to rethink that portion.  Good luck.
