When problems arise with beneficiaries

If you are creating an estate plan, many hurdles may come up. However, handling challenges that involve beneficiaries can be especially difficult. Whether you are having a hard time naming beneficiaries and are not sure how to divide your assets or an argument arises over decisions you have made involving your will or trust, our law office is all too familiar with the different hurdles that people across Massachusetts sometimes have to work through when they are setting up an estate plan.

Divorce and your estate plan

Many different life changes can have an impact on your estate plan, such as the loss of a loved one or significant financial changes. However, divorce is an especially difficult issue for many people to work through, especially with regard to their estate plan. Ending your marriage can affect your life in all sorts of ways, whether you find yourself in a child custody dispute or are unsure of how property will be divided between you and your spouse. To make things more complicated, some people are unsure of which changes they should make to their estate plan, whether they have a trust or will.

Setting up a special needs trust

Legal issues related to trusts take many forms, whether you are in the process of setting up an estate plan or are having trouble naming beneficiaries. Moreover, there are all sorts of different trusts that people create and our law office knows how crucial it is for people in Wakefield and across all of Massachusetts to move forward with these matters properly. If you are considering creating a special needs trust for a beneficiary who is mentally ill or disabled, you should find answers to any questions that you have.
