Barrington And Algonquin: Call 847-381-8700 To Update Your Estate Plan, Wills And Trusts After Divorce

Given the life altering changes in your circumstances that follow divorce, it's an excellent time to revisit or create your estate plan to make sure that it reflects your needs and goals for yourself and your children.

Your last will and testament will need to be amended. You'll probably want to designate new agents under powers of attorney for handling financial and medical matters in the event of an incapacitating emergency. To avoid family conflicts in case of a severe medical condition resulting in life support, you might also want to prepare or revise an advance directive to physicians.

Depending on your stage of life, you might want to name guardians for minor children in case anything happens to you, or you might want to focus on such issues as Medicaid planning, probate avoidance or managing potential estate tax liability. We can advise you about the full range of your estate planning needs.

As a trained accountant, Attorney Joseph Lucas can guide you through the decision process that can help you look ahead after marking a close to your marriage. For additional information about the benefits of updating an estate plan in the aftermath of divorce, contact an attorney at Lucas Law in Barrington.
