I am getting a divorce; do I have to redo my married trust?
The answer is yes. A married trust is for a married couple. If you are going through the divorce
process, you will need to revoke the married trust and create a single trust. This is important to
complete soon after the divorce is finalized to make sure your assets are protected. Please do
not delay in this process. Many times people are so fatigued from the divorce process that they
put this on the backburner. That would be a terrible mistake. Failure to update your trust will
put your loved ones into probate. The probate process is both arduous and expensive. Please
call your estate planning attorney early and often to ensure that your trust is updated. If you
need legal assistance, please call us a for a free consultation!
