Divorce & Death: Make Sure Your Ex Doesn’t Inherit Your Assets

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Divorce & Death: Make Sure Your Ex Doesn’t Inherit Your Assets

Boo! This Halloween, what is more spooky than having your ex inherit all of your money if you die? Alison Besunder, expert in trust and estate planning, elder law, estate litigation, commercial litigation and intellectual property law, joins Stacy to discuss the importance of an estate plan, particularly when going through a transition, such as divorce.

In this episode, Alison and Stacy highlight the first and most important steps that you should take to help you take the least financially-draining path during this time. Alison reveals the shocking consequences of lacking an estate plan, and how that can impact the most important people in your life. They answer questions that could save yourself from the devastating possibilities of life without a will, such as:

• Why do you need an estate plan when you get married vs. getting divorced? (12:13)
• What happens if your spouse dies during your divorce and there is no will? (15:59)
• Can your ex-spouse still make the medical decisions for you after divorce? (20:50)
