Is my inheritance safe in divorce?


Once you enter into a marriage, your life can feel almost entirely co-mingled with your spouse. If you bring assets into the marriage or have a significant inheritance, it is a smart idea to consider having a prenuptial agreement or inquire about asset protection strategies in the event of a divorce.

What should you do if you plan to divorce and have a sizeable inheritance? Will that inheritance be protected? Will you need to split your inheritance with your spouse?

Divorce Tips for Women Over 50


No matter when a divorce happens, it poses certain financial challenges for both people once the dust settles. But women over 50 often have some unique challenges that younger women are less likely to face, especially if they have been married for some time or if they spent a significant amount of time during the marriage out of the traditional paid workforce.

What happens to your health insurance after divorce?

If you're in the process of divorce, or even just contemplating it, there are so many things you have to think about. One of the things that many people neglect to sort out is health insurance.

If you have health insurance through your own job or some other means that's not tied to your spouse, you don't have anything to worry about. But if you insure your spouse under your plan, or they insure you under theirs, the time to sort out what you're going to do is now.


How long do you have to make the change?

Most companies allow for a window of time in which any changes have to be reported. Often that's 30 days. So if you get divorced your spouse can wait a while before they notify their insurance company. That can give you time to get coverage of your own, so you don't have a lapse in coverage and risk a medical problem where you wouldn't have any financial help.
