As a marriage comes to an end, it is important to take into account all legal matters that will be affected by a separation and ultimately, a divorce. As you contemplate creating a new will and powers of attorney, it is best to consult with a lawyer early on.
Is Estate Planning the Last Thing on Your Mind as You Go Through Divorce? Maybe It Shouldn’t Be.
It is certainly understandable if estate planning feels like a matter of lesser importance as you grapple with all the immediate needs that a divorce thrusts upon you. However, having correct, up-to-date estate planning documents in place can make a great difference for beneficiaries if you should be killed in an accident. For many people going through divorce, updating wills, trustsand powers of attorney is an important component of financial and legal rearrangement of life after divorce. The same is true in the case of a name change, a child custody arrangement, a child support order and/or asset division.
