Divorce Wills

By | November 30, 2011

If your marriage is on the rocks and you are about to file for divorce, have you considered how your current will and trust may distribute your estate? While most people have no reason to fear that their spouse may do them harm, even in a divorce situation, sometimes a party will die of natural causes or an accident during the course of a dissolution. If that occurs, do you know whether your spouse will inherit from your estate and would you want that? You may wish to consult an attorney about modifying your estate plan so that you do not inadvertently gift your estate to your ex spouse.
