The effect of separation and divorce on your will and estate planning

It is important that, when you separate from your former spouse, you update your will and other estate planning documents such as a power of attorney and superannuation binding death nomination.

Until your divorce is made final, any gift to, or appointment of, your former spouse as trustee will remain effective.

After divorce, certain parts of your will may be automatically revoked leaving inadequate arrangements in the event something were to happen to you. It is essential that you obtain advice from an estate planning lawyer about your individual circumstances. We have a dedicated team of expert estate planning lawyers.
