About the Program: The intersection of estate planning and family law is bearing more traffic every year and lawyers practicing in one discipline have an ever increasing need to know more about the other. While estate planning attorneys are drafting irrevocable trust agreements and other estate planning documents designed to withstand future challenges and judicial scrutiny, family law attorneys are defending those documents in settlement conferences and in family courts throughout Connecticut. This program will provide a comprehensive discussion of the crossover issues in both practices.

You Will Learn:

  • How best to protect your clients’ assets from the possibility of future divorce
  • Why premarital agreements and trusts may (or may not) be recognized and enforced by family court judges
  • How divorce proceedings and judgments affect current estate plans, and how and when those plans can be updated
