What to include in a post-divorce will

One of the sunny sides to divorce is that an older, more mature version of yourself gets the chance to plan out your new future. Whether you are just beginning the process or you have come through the other side, your will and estate plan should reflect your new direction.

If you do not have a will, you are not alone. A recent survey shows more than half of American adults do not have a valid will. Either way, divorce provides you an opportunity to review and update your existing will, or establish a new one.

A fresh start in the new year: Filing for divorce and bankruptcy

A number of people struggling financially take steps toward improving their lives at the start of the new year. This can involve divorce, bankruptcy, or both. While no one looks forward to bankruptcy or divorce, the result of these difficult processes can be extremely beneficial in the long-term.

Most people choose to wait until after the holidays to file for bankruptcy and divorce. In January, there is typically an influx of divorce cases. January has become known as “divorce month” for this reason.
