Important estate planning considerations amid divorce

As a New York resident who is currently going through a divorce from your significant other, you may find yourself focused on getting your affairs back in order and figuring out your living situation in the days that follow. While working through such matters is an undeniably important aspect of divorce, so, too, is making necessary changes to your estate plan. At the law office of Joseph Ledwidge, P.C., we recognize that your estate planning needs may change in the wake of a divorce. We have helped many people facing similar circumstances make changes to their estate plans that better reflect their new circumstances.

Student loans after death

As many students pursue their education in New York, they may accumulate debt in the form of student loans. A previous blog discussed what might happen if someone dies while he or she is still in debt. This week's blog will focus on student loans after a person's death. 

Estate planning could avoid will contests

The aging population of New York is virtually beset upon by messages about how and where to direct estate funds. Sometimes, that persuasion comes from personal acquaintances or family members as well. Here at the office of Joseph A. Ledwidge, P.C., we often see wills that we suspect were directed, at least in part, by this preponderance of over-generalized or unethical advice.
