If you get a divorce from a parent, how would you go about the procedure? Do both parties have to agree to the terms. I am considering divorcing my father for legal proposes, ie if something were to happen to me I do not want him to benefit from it.
Is this step necessary (divorce) or can I just make a living will, and just avoid the whole headache.
I am 22 years old. Should I seek a professional to consider all options. Any relevant advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    You don’t divorce someone that you are not legally married to. Your father is your father, not your spouse!

    If you don’t want him to be a part of your life anymore (how sad, by the way), the don’t contact him. You can also write a will naming your heirs in the event that you die. And, you can write a living will stating your medical wishes and who you authorize to carry them out for you should you be incapacitated.

    you make a "living will"… call a lawyer and ask about it..

    if you have any children they will be beneficiary…

    you are 22 … "living will"… best way to go

    You can only divorce your parents if you are under the age of 18. After that its all up to you. You can making a living will stating you do not want him getting anything of yours.

    I think divorcing your parents would be just to make a statement. A will would take care of this problem.

    You need to have a will drawn up that states who your beneficiary would be and then put in a statement that says that anyone who contests the will will be given the sum of $1.00. That will exclude your father from being able to access any of your estate. You will also need to draw up a power of attorney, which will allow someone else to handle your finances if you are not able to do it for yourself (you get hit by a bus, for example) AND you need a living will which states what health care options you would prefer and who you would like to make healthcare decsions for you.
