Few of us like to think about our own demise, however if you’re divorced this truly is something you need to consider. Chances are your spouse was your executor, your trustee, your healthcare power of attorney and your beneficiary and if you don’t do anything, they could still be any or all of these and that could mean trouble.
Join Mandy and Boulder-based estate planning attorney, Martha Hartney from Hartney Law as they discuss:
- the five basic documents every person needs even if they have no assets,
- what changes the law stops you from making while your divorce is pending.
- the pitfalls of naming your minor child as your beneficiary
- who you can ask to serve instead of your spouse
The big takeaway from this is that your divorce is not complete until you have taken care of what will happen if you are incapacitated or die.
