Divorcing your one-time partner will undoubtedly have a dramatic effect on many areas of your life, and you may find yourself making some major changes with regard to your living situation, custody arrangements and so on. With everything you have going on, it can prove difficult to devote enough attention to other important matters, such as estate planning, but failing to amend or update your estate plan after a divorce can lead to considerable hardship down the line.
Deciding you want to end your marriage is life-changing. Making such a monumental decision that drastically changes your life is inevitably going to lead to some emotional difficulties. While divorcing your spouse may be the best choice overall, it can be a bumpy road at first.
