Estate Planning & Divorce

Make Sure Your Estate Ends Up in the Right Hands

In the eyes of the law, you are legally married until a judge signs your final divorce decree. In the event you become disabled or pass away before your marriage is legally ended, your ex-spouse might have continuing rights to your estate. Normally, a spouse in New York has certain statutory estate rights. Fortunately, with sophisticated estate planning, there are often ways for you to ensure your estate ends up in the right hands – even before your divorce is finalized.

Apart from divorce, a properly drafted separation agreement can ensure someone other than your ex-partner will receive your estate in the event of your death or incapacitation. It can also possibly limit their rights as a beneficiary of your estate. Due to the complexity of estate planning issues that can arise during a divorce, it is best to work with an experienced lawyer.
