Updating Your Will After Divorce:
Leave property –
When making a will, most people leave everything to their spouse. When you divorce, this becomes a problem, so creating a new will may be the easiest thing to do. You will need to name new beneficiaries as well as alternative ones in the event that the first beneficiary dies before you.
Estate planning is often the first thing to fall by the wayside in divorce. It is important that you closely examine your will or your ex-spouse could end up inheriting.
