How Does Estate Planning Relate to Your Divorce?

Divorce is one of the major life events that requires you to reevaluate your estate plan. If you think a divorce is looming, your estate plan should be thoroughly examined by an experienced lawyer to ensure that your goals and needs will continue to be met. For nearly two decades, our attorneys have helped clients develop both simple and complex estate plans — we understand the intricate details involved in estate planning and will make sure that you are fully protected.

As a first step, we will analyze your current estate plan to determine the extent to which your former spouse stands to inherit from your estate. We will also examine any power of attorney or medical directives granted. Next, we will work with you towards creating an estate plan that more accurately reflects your desire for the future.

Our law firm is dedicated to helping you protect your finances and assets, including any property you owned before getting married and any retirement benefits. We also have significant experience working with clients to draft prenuptial agreements that can withstand a court challenge.
