Do I Need To Update My Will After A Divorce

You Need To Update Your Plan After Divorce

Call (720) 513-2299 to schedule a free consultation with estate planning attorney Jeff Althaus or Cristyn Kelly.

Our law firm receives many questions concerning whether or not individuals need to update their trust or their will after a divorce. The simple answer is yes, you absolutely need to. You could rely on the law to decide how your things will be transferred, however, making up your own mind and deciding how you want things to go will guarantee that your wishes are carried out, rather than simply hoping the law does it for you.

Common Planning Questions Following Divorce

We can answer many questions regarding your will, trust and other estate planning documents following a divorce, including:

  • Will my ex-spouse still inherit from me?
  • Where will my property go after I pass away?
  • Who will take care of my children if I pass, especially now that I am divorced?
  • What do I do with my retirement accounts and investments after a divorce?
  • Who will make medical and financial decisions for me if I am incapacitated?

Divorce raises many questions. Attorneys Jeff Althaus and Cristyn Kelly can provide you with the answers. Make sure your plan is in order following your divorce, not only to protect you, but your children and the rest of your family as well.
