Woodland Hills Divorce Planning Lawyer
Preparing for Divorce? You Need Protection
One aspect of life that many people simply do not consider is planning for divorce. There are various documents available that can help you plan for a future divorce, including prenuptial agreements. However, most of these documents are family law documents, and not estate planning documents. That being said, there are many ways you can prepare your estate for a divorce, though you will need a knowledgeable attorney to help you do so. Having an experienced and skilled estate planning lawyer on your side can help to minimize unforeseen surprises in the process. The Law Offices of Yacoba Ann Feldman understand that facing hard times can be difficult and emotional. Planning for one’s estate for an impending divorce can be overwhelming. It is important to protect yourself and your estate from the unknown. Our firm is here to help. If you believe that your divorce will impact your estate or your end-of-life care, it is important to consult with an attorney that can effectively protect your interests. The Law Offices of Yacoba Ann Feldman has over 35 years of experience helping clients through tough times with a focus on protecting one’s future. Contact our firm to schedule a complimentary consultation to discuss this matter.
Plan for the Unpredictable
Filing for divorce may limit your options to change parts of an existing estate plan or change beneficiary designations on life insurance or retirement plans. If you die while your divorce is pending, your spouse may be your most significant heir. Your spouse may also have the right to make emergency medical decisions on your behalf if you are unable to make them for yourself. Rather obviously, this is something that will need revising, along with the fact that if your spouse is your most significant heir, there is a very good chance that he or she may inherit your assets upon your passing. Of course, if you are divorced, you most likely would rather have your children or other family members inherit these assets. That is where we can help. Whether you already have an estate plan, will or trust in place or you want to create a new one, there are many steps you can take, along with the assistance of an experienced California estate planning attorney, to make sure you are protected from unexpected and unwanted consequences during the divorce process.
