Ms. Webb was wonderful handling affairs for my husband and I. She was efficient, professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and we were highly pleased. Her staff could not have been nicer. She has our highest recommendation.

I can't say enough good things about Heidi - she 100% saved the day on a house purchase my daughter was making - there were issues with a Life Estate which my husband and I knew nothing about. Heidi not only educated me but helped the seller (their son was the Trustee) with some very complicated issues that could have potentially blown the sale. Because of Heidi's legal expertise with elder law/estates and trusts, my daughter closed on the house this week.

ASK HEIDI: Do I need to change my will and beneficiary designations after I divorce if I want my ex-spouse to still inherit as if we were married?

 Short Answer:  Yes, divorce does void beneficiary designations as well as will provisions.

Divorce Changes Your Will

Ask Heidi

Why it’s Important:  If you want your ex-spouse to still to inherit in your estate as it was written when you were married, this needs to be addressed again after your divorce.  If you do not update the Estate documents, your estate will be deemed intestate even though you have a will.  The state will distribute your assets and family that you may not have a relationship with will end up with assets you fully intended to go to a former spouse.
