Product Description

The interplay between inheritance, trusts, and divorce is one that raises a series of issues every estate planning and family law attorney must be prepared to address— you must plan for asset protection with these concerns in mind. The steps estate planning attorneys take to protect assets once divorce proceedings have commenced, the procedure for courts to value a trust interest for purposes of equitable distribution and/or support payments, and recent legal decisions all influence any practice related to inheritance, trusts interests or divorce. In this program, expert faculty answer these questions and others that arise when these topics collide.
