Updating An Estate Plan After Divorce
Divorce inevitably triggers a need to review your estate planning documents and revise them as needed in light of your new circumstances.
At Pearson & Paris, P.C., our attorneys will help you proactively address your specific situation. We advise, revise and review estate documents commensurate with changes resulting from separation and divorce.

What Changes Do You Need To Make?
You may already be aware of the need to revise your will following separation or divorce, but changing your will does not affect property that passes outside of a will. It also does not change separate documents such as a power of attorney for medical or financial purposes.
Changes in your marital status may therefore require updating documents that may include:
- Beneficiary designations on life insurance, retirement accounts and investments
- Health care proxy (medical power of attorney) designation
- Financial power of attorney
Our lawyers can provide the trusted guidance you need to create the needed legal structure for your new family circumstances.
What If You Start A New Relationship?
Are you planning to remarry? Are you bringing children from a previous marriage to your new blended family? If so, you may need a prenuptial agreement that sees to the material needs of children from your first marriage, or it may make sense to create a revocable or irrevocable trust that works to their advantage.
We will look closely at what your unique situation calls for and help you determine a path to meet your goals.
