GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) Even in life’s most difficult situations, having the right tools can make getting through anything much easier. That includes legal matters like divorce.
WOTV 4 Women crew member Gail Saukas of Divorce Attorneys for Women (D.A.W.N.) says women need to think of the big picture and cover their bases during and after divorce. That includes updating all of your important documents, like wills.
In Michigan, if your will says you’re leaving your assets to your spouse, and you’re divorced, it’s all void. There are other things to consider, too, like naming a guardian for your children and updating life insurance beneficiaries and power of attorney,
D.A.W.N. can help you through the process of changing your important documents. It can be done at any time, even if you were divorced long ago. D.A.W.N. has offices in Grand Rapids, Kentwood, Grandville, and Portage. Call (616) 957-DAWN or visit their website for more information.
