Examining the impact of divorce on a will

While divorce does bring with it a sense of finality, it may not necessarily end one's ties to their ex-spouse in Barboursville. Indeed, during one's marriage, their spouse's were typically joint partners in any matters related to both their emotional and financial well-being. Specifically referencing the latter, there are probably many accounts and financial instruments in which a divorced couple remains linked. A will, for example, may still list an ex-spouse among one's beneficiaries. With Kiplinger's Personal Finance reporting that the rate of divorced couples in their 50's has doubled since 1990, the issue of estate planning following divorce is likely to gain more notoriety. 

What to know about postnuptial agreements

West Virginia couples may have any number of reasons to resist drafting a prenuptial agreement, and while those reasons may have seemed sound at the time, you might find yourself wishing you had done otherwise now that you have tied the knot. However, even though a prenup is no longer in the cards, you can still work out a similar arrangement with your spouse known as a postnuptial agreement.
