Life transitions like divorce can bring significant changes to your family dynamics and financial situation. In times of uncertainty, ensuring your estate plan reflects your current circumstances becomes paramount. At Tomes Law Firm, we specialize in guiding individuals through the complexities of estate planning after divorce.

Why You Need an Estate Planning Lawyer After Divorce

During divorce proceedings, it’s crucial to revisit your estate plan to safeguard your assets and protect your loved ones. While divorce may automatically revoke certain rights of your ex-spouse, it’s essential to ensure your wishes are clearly outlined by an estate planning lawyer to avoid any ambiguity.

Our Services Include:

Review your prenuptial (or postnuptial) agreement: Revisit your prenuptial or postnuptial agreement to ensure it aligns with your current financial situation and estate planning goals. Make any necessary revisions to protect your interests and assets.

Revisit guardianship for minor children: Review and update your plans for the guardianship of your minor children to ensure they are cared for by individuals you trust in the event of your incapacity or death.

Will Revision: As your divorce planning guide, our team will assist you in updating your Will to reflect your post-divorce wishes. We’ll help you navigate the legal complexities to ensure your assets are distributed according to your intentions.

Beneficiary and Power of Attorney Designation Updates: We’ll guide you through the process of updating beneficiary and power of attorney designations on life insurance policies, retirement accounts, and other assets to reflect your current preferences.

Executor Nomination: You have the freedom to choose who will manage your estate after you’re gone. As your estate planning lawyer, we’ll help you nominate an executor who aligns with needs, priorities, and goals.

Update your Healthcare Proxy: Ensure your healthcare wishes are respected by updating your healthcare proxy. Designate a trusted individual to make medical decisions on your behalf if you become unable to do so.

Trust Creation: When estate planning after divorce, you may want to explore the benefits of establishing a trust to protect your assets and provide for your loved ones. A trust can offer flexibility, privacy, and control over the distribution of your estate.
