What Legal Documents Should Be Updated After a Divorce?

Kahn and Richardson - Tuesday, March 07, 2017

Once you are divorced, it is important to make changes to certain legal documents.

Below is a list of common legal documents that should be updated when your divorce is final:

  • Last Will and Testament
  • Trust Documents
  • Beneficiary Designations, including life insurance policies and retirement accounts
  • Powers of Attorney
  • Medical Directives, such as Health Care Proxies and Living Wills
  • W-4, the form used by your employer to withhold the proper amount of federal income tax from your paycheck

To prevent any unintended consequences, update all such legal documents to reflect your new status and your new directions.
