Divorce is difficult. It is an emotional time for clients, who may feel overwhelmed. But, it is also important for clients and advisors to address estate plans when clients are contemplating or are in the process of divorce. Also, once a divorce is finalized, clients often fail to take the affirmative steps to ensure that the terms of the decree are actually what happens.
Please join McLane Middleton Attorneys William V.A. Zorn and Bradford N. Vezina on November 19, 2019 for a presentation to discuss opportunities and pitfalls when estate planning and divorce intersect:
- Pre-divorce - take care of it now; the use of prenuptial agreements and irrevocable trusts
- During divorce - what you can and cannot do; the effect of filing for divorce on existing documents, and the use post-nuptial agreements
- Post-divorce - some necessary steps; beneficiary designations and rewriting existing documents
Registration/Networking - 7:30 a.m.
Program - 8:00-9:00 a.m.
This event is being offered as a free education session.
