Estate Planning to Protect Your Family in Georgia
Estate planning involves an inventory of your assets, who you wish to receive those assets when you die and precautions if you should become incapacitated or die prematurely. The documents that you have drawn up while married, however, need to be changed if you have decided to divorce. Since husbands and wives often leave a majority of their assets to their spouses and name each other as decision makers in the event of incapacitation, changes those documents are usually in your best interests.
Whether you have a will, revocable trust, power of attorney or other documents that involve your ex-spouse or soon-to-be ex-spouse, you should take care to ensure that your wishes are fully preserved and updated.
