When you are married, your spouse is most likely the person who is named on most of your legal documents. These documents give your spouse a great deal of authority to make decisions for you if you become incapacitated and entitle him or her to considerable wealth if you should pass away.
It is important that you take steps to update your estate planning documents as soon as possible following your divorce to better reflect your wishes. At The Rose Law Firm, LLC, our lawyers represent clients throughout central Alabama in a broad range of post-divorce estate planning matters.
Protecting Your Interests After A Divorce
The time following a divorce can be quite overwhelming. While updating to estate planning may seem like a minor detail, forgetting to do so can have serious implications. Until you remove your former spouse's name from your documents, all of the authority and privileges that the documents provide remain intact.
We will help you update all of your documents, including the following:
- Powers of attorney
- Living will and advance health care directives
