Estate Planning And Divorce
One of the most overlooked aspects of a divorce case involves decisions regarding your estate plan. It is important to review your estate plan to determine who you wish to receive your assets, who has the power to make health care decisions on your behalf and other important matters. It is likely that you will want to make changes to your will and other documents to better reflect your new reality. It is important to have experienced legal counsel on your side to help guide you through this process.

Updating Your Important Documents Following A Divorce
All too often, people forget to change the beneficiary designations in their wills, insurance policies and investment accounts following a divorce. This can result in an ex-spouse receiving a large amount of money and/or assets. People also forget to change other important documents such as health care directives, which means an ex-spouse may be left in charge of making medical decisions on your behalf.
When it comes to estate planning and divorce, it is always wise to at least look over your estate plan. With the help of qualified lawyers, it is relatively easy to make changes and updates that better reflect your current situation and desires.
Working With Blended And Nontraditional Families
It is very important to update your estate plan if you remarry or otherwise become involved in a long-term relationship. This can help ensure that your wishes are carried out when it comes to your children and any stepchildren that may come into your blended family. We have extensive experience working with nontraditional families and can help give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing your wishes will be carried out how you see fit.
