How To Stay In Control During and After Your Divorce

And Make Sure That Your Assets Don’t Accidently End Up In the Hands of your Soon-to-Be Ex!

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:

  • You become incapacitated during divorce proceedings and your soon-to-be ex could still have authority over your medical and financial affairs.
  • You die without updating key beneficiary designations and your ex-spouse stands to inherit from your estate.
  • Even though you meant to protect your assets for your children’s use, you die before the divorce is final and your financially unstable ex gets everything, leaving the children nothing.

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…

My name is Heather Chubb and I am a local estate planning attorney in the greater Sacramento area.

Our law firm offers a collaborative approach to support you in getting your estate plan updated after divorce.

I have created an educational resource titled, “Stay In Control During And After Your Divorce… And Make Sure That Your Assets Don’t Accidently End Up In the Hands Of Your Ex-Spouse! 6 Legal Documents To Update” that I would like to offer you free of charge.

This educational guide will help you identify the legal and financial documents you will eventually need to update. Many people in the Muskegon County area who have come through, or are in the midst of divorce, find it to be a great resource as they begin preparing their finances and other important documents to reflect the changes in their marital status.

CLIENT Story

I was absolutely without a clue as to how to begin or what I should do to establish an estate plan. I did know that I wanted someone I could trust, that was honest and I would have confidence in. I was referred to Heather by my friend who was being legally advised by Heather on another estate. She was very satisfied with her work and thought I might be happy with her service. At our consultation appointment, her presentation was very thorough. I had lots of questions, and she was easy to talk to and was able to guide me to just the kind of estate plan I needed. That was 10 years ago. Due to circumstances in my life, I have had to make changes to my plan, and I always go back to her for her legal services and guidance. I have recommended Heather before.
