About This Course:
With a 50% divorce rate, and a higher rate, some say 75%, for second and later marriages, a careful understanding of the matrimonial implications of estate planning and in particular the use of trusts, is essential to accomplish essential matrimonial and estate planning goals. Trusts have important matrimonial implications.

This live webinar will review will and trust drafting, and how trusts may be attacked in a divorce. It will also cover prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements, drafting gift and other provisions, financial planning and structuring accounts and assets to conform with the matrimonial arrangements, and other matters.

This live webinar will explore how modern trust drafting techniques protect clients going through divorce, and how matrimonial practitioners will have to address these techniques when representing clients in divorce.
