A Divorce Is The Right Time To Update Your Estate Plan
As experienced high net worth divorce attorneys, our goal is to provide each of our clients with comprehensive representation that takes the guesswork and uncertainty out of complex legal issues and positions them for life’s next stages. During the divorce process, many of our clients are preoccupied with questions concerning:
- The future of private or family businesses
- Ongoing alimony and child support obligations
- Division of marital and nonmarital property
These are all essential issues to resolve, of course, but our job is to ensure that other long-term legal issues are also addressed. For most of our clients, modifying an existing estate plan — or creating one altogether — should be a top priority.
As one of the pre-eminent family law firms in Southwest Florida, our firm offers clients our network of other legal and financial experts. This includes estate planning lawyers whose experience and familiarity with issues affecting high net worth individuals make them an ideal resource for our clientele. In our representation, we can identify and recommend services that clients may require; this includes:
- Modifying existing wills to remove a spouse as a beneficiary
- Modifying trusts to remove a spouse as a trustee or beneficiary
- Updating living wills and advance health care directives
- Executing new estate planning documents
We recognize that it can be difficult for individuals who have planned their futures with their spouses to make such fundamental adjustments to their life plans. We approach these cases with the highest degree of professionalism, discretion and empathy to make revisiting one’s estate plan as straightforward as possible.
