CONFIDENCE THROUGH EXPERIENCE
Post Divorce Considerations
What happens after your divorce is over?
After your divorce has been finalized, you still need to take significant steps to prepare for your future.
Changing Your Beneficiaries
One of the most important things you can do after a divorce is to change your beneficiaries. Even if you re-marry, your former spouse will remain your beneficiary until you make the change.
In one case, an individual remarried but did not change his beneficiary. Even though he had a new wife, his former spouse received approximately 95 percent of his estate.
After divorce, most people begin thinking about marriage and long-term relationships differently. You may want to consider a pre-nuptial agreement or a cohabitation agreement.
