When you are preparing to dissolve your marriage, it is important to update your estate plan and beneficiary designations. Your payable-upon-death savings, checking, and retirement accounts should be reviewed and amended. It is also critical to change Power of Attorney and health care forms. If your ex-spouse has been designated your financial Power of Attorney, name someone else you trust. You will not want your ex to be responsible for important health care decisions, either.
If you and your spouse are separated, but the divorce has not been filed the power of attorney is still in full effect. Therefore, upon separation it is important to make sure that you immediately update your power of attorney documents if you no longer wish your spouse to be your agent. Our legal team will guide you in protecting your estate and your heirs prior to a divorce.

And what if something should happen to both of you? Drafting your will and estate plan prior to the finalization of the divorce avoids any questions concerning inheritance, assets, personal property, and life insurance.
