Westchester Post Divorce Estate Planning Lawyer

After a divorce, everything changes — even your estate planning needs. As part of finalizing matters and moving forward with your life, it is often critical to revise your estate plan. Do you have questions? Our post-divorce estate planning lawyers are ready to help.

How We Can Help

We regularly work with our divorce and family law clients to revise current estate plans or draft new documents. We tailor our services to your individual needs, drafting and reviewing a range of documents, including:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Living wills
  • Powers of attorney
  • Guardianships

Each family situation is different, and estate planning can account for possible events that affect your family situation. For example, a will can designate a guardian for your children, just in case. It is also possible to leave assets to your children but to create a trust that will hold them until they reach a certain age. Your Will can also designate who will inherit your possessions, and a Living Will or Health Care Proxy can designate who will make decisions if you become too sick to communicate your own healthcare decisions.

These are difficult conversations to have and can be difficult decisions to make, but they often come up naturally as part of the divorce process. Finalizing matters in a new, updated estate plan is a brilliant next step.
