Cole Miller PLLC strongly urges clients to prepare a will and review their estate plan regularly. Following a divorce, you no longer have a spouse to take care of financial matters in the event of an illness, incapacity, or disability. You have also substantially restructured your financial situation. Retirement accounts have been divided and, in some cases, transferred to a spouse who may not have previously had retirement savings accounts.|
In the course of preparing your case for negotiation or litigation, we become very familiar with and identify all the assets, debts, expenses, and income you have. With that information at hand, we can readily incorporate that into a will. We also recommend that you prepare a durable power of attorney that will authorize a trusted friend or family to pay mortgages, collect income, etc. during a period of incapacity for medical or other reasons.
The third document to consider is a medical directive or Living Will that will guide your medical care providers and family in making medical decisions in the event you are not able.
