What does divorce have to do with estate planning? Quite a lot, as it turns out.
It is estimated that between 42% and 45% of marriages in the United States will end in divorce. In California, the divorce rate is even higher—approximately 10% above the national average. Not only is divorce emotionally wrenching, it is also fraught with legal complexities—with nuances you may not even be aware of. If divorce is on the horizon for you, it is important to understand the impact of divorce on estate plans. This is something many people have probably never thought about.
