If you have gone through, or are in the middle of a divorce, updating your wills, trusts, healthcare directives and other estate planning documents is probably the last thing on your mind.
After all, you’ve likely come through months or years of dealing with lawyers, legal fees and trying to work though tough issues such as the division of assets, custody issues, child support and more.
No doubt estate planning can feel like an added burden during an already difficult time.
Yet, if you do not update your legal documents before, during or AFTER your divorce, you could experience one of the following nightmares:
Most people would shudder at the idea of their ex-spouse having so much control and this is why it’s critical to update your beneficiary designations and other estate planning documents to prevent your ex-spouse from inheriting money or remaining in positions of authority.
We can help ensure this never happens to you…
