Implications of Divorce on Estate Planning

If you are in a position of being recently divorced or are in the process of ending a marriage you need an estate planning checklist for divorce. It is imperative to revisit your estate planning documents to avoid inadvertently giving a soon to be or former spouse control over your estate. While the divorce process attempts to equitably divide assets, it usually falls short of addressing the estate planning needs of clients. It is prudent to revise estate planning documents during a divorce to ensure your wishes are carried out, as a contentious divorce can often last many years.
