St. Louis Post-Divorce Estate Planning Attorney

Divorce may seem like a process that brings a sense of closure to your financial affairs, and to an extent it does – you and your spouse have divided your assets and the court has established financial obligations one may have to other in terms of maintenance or child support.  But divorce does not foreclose discussion of future changes in your personal assets, particularly upon your death.

Clients frequently wonder how they can assure that certain parts of their estates will go exclusively to their children without their former spouse having the ability to access or manage these funds.  Is it possible to award a house to your child without that child having to fight your former spouse for it?  Can you provide for your child’s college education without your former spouse having any access to or management of these funds?

At The Marks Law Firm, L.L.C., we can help answer all of your questions about safeguarding your assets post-divorce and prepare appropriate estate planning tools and give you the advice to ease your anxiety about your former spouse interfering with any assets you obtain post-divorce.
