Rule Of Right, Not Might
Updating An Estate Plan After A Divorce
Anyone can tell you that a divorce is typically a challenging and taxing process that can take months or even years to resolve. When everything is finally said and done, you might want to just move on in life, but there is a piece of work that you will want to address as soon as possible. At Funk & Wendlinger, LLC, we can help you update your estate plans after your divorce is complete.
You might feel the urge to put this task off until a later time, but it is important to remember that there is a good chance that your estate plans have your now ex-spouse listed as the beneficiary for many of your assets. This means that if you were to pass away before updating things, your ex-spouse could receive the rest of your estate.
How We Can Help You Prepare For Your Future
Changing your will may seem simple, but other aspects of updating your estate plan are more complicated under Indiana law. For example, the pensions or 401(k)s you earned during your marriage might need to be properly divided between you and your ex-spouse. This type of property division often requires lengthy paperwork to properly ensure that you will be able to access these funds when you need them.
Our team can help you review all the aspects of your unique situation and help you update your estate to protect your best interests, while also following any stipulations of your divorce decree. Our extensive experience in estate planning can act as a major advantage for your future.
