Divorced and Thinking about Trying itAge BetterNew Bio Physics Discovery laboratory provena younger appearanceFREE SAMPLEWhy Go Solar?Again? You Need to Be Aware of the IssuesFBy Kathleen Cassidy Goodman, PLLCpeople who remarry are unaware that upon your death, your new spouse, even a common law spouse, is entitled to live in the family homestead until his or her death.This is true even if your residence is your separate property - property you owned before you remarried. Yes, this is true even if you received the house as part of the divorce settlement from your prior marriage. Your new spouse is entitled to live in your home until he or she dies – even if you gave it to your children in your Will. Your children will have to wait until your spouse dies before they have complete ownership and are allowed to sell your home.Prior to a remarriage, couples can enter into a premarital agreement or a co- habitation agreement. Even if you weren’t aware of this and have already taken that second plunge, you and your spouse can enter into a property agreement to protect your children’s inheritance.Kathleen Cassidy Goodman is an attorney in areas of estate planning, probate, civil litigation, and business law.

This is really not an issue because in that situation, Texas Law treats a divorced spouse as if the former spouse predeceased you. However, it is still highly recommended that following a divorce, you prepare a new Will. While eliminating your former spouse as the primary beneficiary of your estate is the first step, in most situations you will likely need to update your Executor and other information in your Will that is no longer relevant.If you made changes to your Will following your divorce, and now you are thinking of taking the plunge again, there are extremely important issues you need to consider. It is likely that when you entered into your first marriage you were younger, did not have children, and did not really own any property. Perhaps you are older and wiser, but on the second time around, there are additional considerations that you did not have the first time around.One thing you may not have considered is where you and the “new love of your life” will live?
