HLO can help with Estate Planning. We strongly encourage all family law parties to contact HLO or others to understand the importance of making changes to their estate plans during and after divorce, separation, etc. Some changes should be made immediately and before the divorce is finalized; assuming that the party has decided that he/she does not want the current spouse to inherit assets as spouse if the party dies before the divorce is final.
Parties should update or complete Power of Attorney for financial/ business affairs, medical care, mental health care, living will, care for children, beneficiaries on insurance, retirement, etc.
Many people fail to make necessary changes to their beneficiaries and Power of Attorney after divorce- or major changes in their lives… and this failure often results in assets and other decisions being made that are not contrary to a party’s wishes or interests.
As a result of the myriad of potential problems that family law clients may be subject, HLO offers no-cost changes in clients’ wills when handling a divorce, and discounted fees for assistance in changing beneficiaries, power of attorneys, and other legal documents. For new, non-family law clients, HLO offers low-cost assistance in estate planning. Please consider a free consultation before using an online-do-it-yourself form.
Our services include:
- Assistance updating documents / beneficiaries
- All types of Power of Attorney
- Deed / title transfers
