While many attorneys claim to guide you through the divorce process, few will even mention the necessary changes to your estate plan a divorce causes. After a divorce you are no longer related to the person who was most likely your primary beneficiary on your life insurance, retirement accounts, and various other accounts. Furthermore, any will or trust you had previously established to keep your estate from going to probate, most likely has your former spouse listed as a beneficiary. Post divorce family law estate planning is crucial to protecting your loved ones.
We take a big-picture approach to divorce and advise our clients about updating their estate planning for a post-divorce life. This includes updating their estate plans and establishing provisions for the protection and support of their children in the unfortunate event the client should pass too soon.
We have experience in assisting clients in establishing revocable and irrevocable trusts, living wills, durable powers of attorney, pour-over wills, and regular wills. We also can assist clients in developing asset management strategies to assist your family members every step of the way.
