After Divorce, What Agreements Should be Reviewed or Adjusted to Assure Your Intended Beneficiaries Receive What You Want Them To Receive ?

By Fredrick P. Niemann, Esq., a NJ Estate Planning Attorney

It is important that you review any agreements you may have to ensure they comply with your intended estate plan. Property settlement agreements from the divorce with your first spouse, as well as marital agreements you may have with your second spouse, whether it be pre-marital or post-marital, should all be reviewed to ensure compliance. Additional agreements may have to be created with your spouse as desired. Certain plans you may have previously entered into may need to be adjusted if you have new beneficiaries that you wish to receive your assets. These include Life Insurance policies and retirement plans. Other agreements specific to your situation may have to be created or adjusted depending on your situation.
