Divorce & Death: Make Sure Your Ex Doesn’t Inherit Your Assets
Boo! This Halloween, what is more spooky than having your ex inherit all of your money if you die? Alison Besunder, expert in trust and estate planning, elder law, estate litigation, commercial litigation and intellectual property law, joins Stacy to discuss the importance of an estate plan, particularly when going through a transition, such as divorce.
In this episode, Alison and Stacy highlight the first and most important steps that you should take to help you take the least financially-draining path during this time.
