After a divorce a person may need to evaluate their estate plan to remove or add assets that have changed hands as a result of the parties’ property settlement plans. An inaccurate estate plan is one that may be subject to scrutiny in probate and open to challenges by individuals who may benefit from it.

It is always a good idea to review one’s will and other estate planning devices to ensure that they are accurate and current. However, the changes that a divorce imposes on a person’s life necessitate the timely review of the testamentary documents and plans for the distribution of their end of life wealth.
