Changing a Will After a Divorce in Colorado
What do I do with my estate plan after a divorce? Is my ex-spouse still entitled to my stuff? If these are questions you are asking yourself following your divorce in the Thornton area, speaking with a skilled lawyer can help.

How Does a Divorce Affect My Estate Plan?
After a divorce, you will most likely want to remove your ex-spouse from your medical power of attorney as well as your financial power of attorney. If you added him or her as a beneficiary on your retirement accounts, life insurance or bank accounts, you will probably want to change those beneficiaries around as well.
Colorado law automatically removes certain designations to an ex-spouse in your will, but it does not remove everything. Having a lawyer with estate planning experience is critical to ensure your property is protected and goes where you want.
