Don’t Forget the Importance of Estate Planning When it Comes to Divorce

At Amaral & Associates P.C. We are focused on two main areas, Family Law and Estate Planning. We can help your family plan for the future so that in the case of an unexpected illness or unexpected family member’s passing, most everything can be taken care of with some advance planning. Health challenges aren’t the only issues that can come up.

One of the things that we help people plan for is life’s uncertainties. No one’s life follows a straight line. Life is full of change and uncertainty. This is especially true when it comes to long-term relationships. We understand that not all marriages last but the family and the relationship still have to continue even after a divorce, especially when children are involved.

When going through a divorce, Estate Planning is often the last thing you think of, but divorce necessitates a thorough review and revision of your estate plan to ensure that it aligns with your current circumstances and wishes. Divorce can change not only your financial situation but also affect various components of your estate plan, including wills, trusts, beneficiary designations, and powers of attorney.

When you review the impact of divorce on various components of your estate plan and then take proactive steps to update legal documents, you can protect your legacy and provide for your loved ones.

An experienced estate planning attorney is able to read between the lines and navigate the family dynamics to help get your family not only what you want but also what you need when it comes to your post-divorce estate planning.

We work with many families on their post-divorce estate plans. We can help you evaluate key considerations and then take steps to protect your legacy and provide for your loved ones.
