Rochester MN Wills Attorney
Wills are an often overlooked yet critical element to many divorces. Many people think of divorce as the end of a marriage, but, more importantly, it is the beginning of the rest of your life. Divorce is a time for you to make decisions about your future. Drafting a will is a natural extension of that.
For parents who have divorced, it can be extremely important that you make plans for your children should anything happen to you. Part of responsible parenting is having a plan that helps shepherd your children toward a healthy and stable future.
At Walters & Wintering, our Rochester wills attorney has been practicing law for more than 30 years. We understand how important it is to have a will in place whether you are a parent or not. Putting your wishes into a form that is legally recognizable, like a will, can relieve some of the pressure that is going to be placed on your relatives when you pass. If you are divorced and have children, not having a will may create real conflict and stress for your loved ones.
A simple will allows you to:
- Set up guardianships
- Direct property post-divorce
- Ensure that there is someone to manage the property or assets that you leave for your children
- Allow your wishes and concerns regarding custody of your children to be known in the case of your death.
