After Divorce, What Agreements Should You Review to Protect Loved Ones?

HNWElder Law, Estate Planning

divorce hnwJust divorced? Getting divorced? Been divorced and haven’t done anything about changing key documents?  Obviously, I think it is important that you review your key documents after divorce to ensure they are consistent with your new status. Property settlement agreements with your first spouse, as well as marital agreements you may have with a second spouse, (whether pre-marital or post-marital), should all be reviewed to make sure a proposed estate plan is compliant.

Additional agreements may have to be created and new beneficiaries designated to receive your estate. Look at your life insurance policies and retirement plans in particular.

After divorce, your estate planning remains important to your future. Entering into a second marriage brings about a number of significant issues that must be addressed before the marriage.
