Our attorneys draft wills, living wills and powers of attorneys, which may be needed at the conclusion of a divorce. Truhlar and Truhlar drafts these documents for parties who are not getting divorced, as well as parties who have completed their divorce. Additionally, some parties going through a divorce prefer to execute powers of attorney, designating someone other than their spouse to serve as their agent for either financial or medical purposes, or for both, during the time the dissolution of marriage or legal separation is pending.
A will designates the individuals who will receive the estate of the person who executes the will. In some cases, a will may set up a trust for minor children or other beneficiaries under the age of 18.
