WHERE:  Your office via Zoom

WHEN:  Wednesday, September 15th - 3:00-4:00 PM

Welcome back!  To kick off our new program year, we will be joining in on a webinar by our national association, the National Association of Estate Planners and Councils (NAEPC).  Specifics on this meeting are as follows:


In this program we will explore misconceptions in divorce, mainly how one’s testamentary plans may actually play out in the process. We will examine the concerns to weigh when the parties have trust assets (marital, separate, or hybrid property). We will discuss how testamentary documents may not completely shield a party’s assets from a claim for equitable distribution, spousal and child support, and attorneys’ fees and costs. We will analyze how a party’s actions before, during, and after divorce may impact the ultimate treatment of their assets and liabilities.
