Simple Separation have helped you through your divorce, but there is still more to do.
Did you know that your ex could still take control of your estate, if you were to die, if you don’t have a Will in place?
As the other parent to your child or children, they have a back door pass to your estate.
You also need to ensure the property settlement that you negotiated is given effect, if you die, so that your Ex can’t come back for more.
You need to do this NOW.
You must now put in place:
Your Will, appointing an executor (not your ex) and passing on your hard earned assets to who you want.
A testamentary Trust, to keep your assets safe, and with possible tax benefits.
Enduring power of Attorney, so that your ex can make take control of your finances if you become incapacitated
Medical Power of Attorney, so your choice of person can make health care decisions
And much more
