Please call 734-663-0555 to speak to a lawyer in Ann Arbor or Jackson, Michigan.

Revising Your Estate Plan Is Essential

If your marriage has ended, you may need to revise your estate plan. If you do not update your estate plan and your former spouse is a beneficiary, your estate could be passed on to your ex after your death. Other things may happen as well:

  • The children of your ex-spouse may remain beneficiaries.
  • Your ex-spouse may be put in charge of making decisions about end-of-life medical care.
  • Your ex-spouse may be given control over your finances if you become incapacitated.
  • Your ex-spouse may get custody of your children.

Whether you are just getting started with your divorce, or if your divorce was finalized years ago, you should talk to an estate planning attorney as soon as possible. We can make sure your estate plan is up-to-date and reflects your current life circumstances.
