How Divorce Impacts Your Estate Plan

If you are going through a divorce or your divorce recently became final, it is important to consider changing your will, advance healthcare directive and power of attorney documents. Maura Curran can assist you with updating your estate plan to change the beneficiary designations and fidcuciary appointments.Even if you and your ex-spouse separated under amicable terms, you probably do not want him/her making your medical decisions for you or handling your finances in the future. Thus, if your estate plan currently names your ex-spouse in any of your documents, you need to update it.

It is important to note that the changes to your estate plan should be made during the divorce process. You do not need to wait until your final decree is entered.  Why the rush? If you are involved in an accident during your divorce, your estate planning documents control who receives your inheritance and makes your medical and financial decisions.

If you are going through a divorce or you have been recently divorced, call The Curran Law Firm to ensure that your estate plan is updated.
