Estate Planning After Divorce in Alberta

Divorce is one of the main events that can happen in your life that should cause you to update your estate plan. Your old will and other documents are not automatically cancelled following the end of a marriage. At Kirk Montoute LLP, our lawyers help individuals throughout Alberta update their plans after going through the divorce process.

Schedule a consultation at our Calgary office online or call our lawyers at 403-233-9300. We will examine your plan and lay out all of the options you have available for updating your will or drafting new documents.

Helping You Create a New Estate Plan After Your Divorce

Whether your divorce was complex and involved a lot of conflict, or was rather smooth with no need for litigation, your estate plan could still benefit from an update. From changing beneficiaries on retirement accounts and life insurance policies to removing your ex-spouse from certain roles in your plan, our lawyers at Kirk Montoute LLP can help.

You may also have certain requirements to fulfil in your divorce decree. We can analyze your entire situation and help you create a brand new plan that will meet all of your needs while still protecting your children and your assets.

Estate Planning for Second and Third Marriages

Whether you have been divorced once or multiple times, estate planning can play a critical role in your future and the future of your children. This is especially true if you remarry. The laws in Alberta do not automatically ensure that all of your assets will get to your children. In situations where both spouses are bringing children into the family from another marriage, the distribution of wealth and assets becomes very complicated.

In order to avoid fights further down the road, putting a solid plan in place now is essential. Allow our team to guide you through the planning process and give you the peace of mind you seek.
