As unlikely as it may seem, Amy Winehouse was pretty savvy about her estate planning! She had recently had her will updated, and her bounty will be disposed of according to her wishes, thanks to good legal advice and her own willingness to address an issue that we all face, and all hate to think about.
Divorce can have a huge impact on your existing will. There are several different possible outcomes depending on whether one was to die during the divorce, right after the divorce without an updated will, right after the divorce with an updated will etc.
A question I often run across is whether a divorced parent can put in his or her will, that the ex-spouse is not to have custody of their children for one reason or another. What do you think the answer is?
