The ABA Section of Family Law, Solo, Small Firm and General Practice Division, Young Lawyers Division and the Center for Professional Development will host a 90-minute live webinar and teleconference entitled, Divorce and Trusts: How to Effectively Represent Your Client from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. central standard time on Wednesday, January 16, 2013. Provided below is a description from the ABA website:
Join our panel of family law and estate planning practitioners who will cover the complicated issues that can arise during divorces when trusts are involved.
Topics to be addressed:
- Whether assets held in trust can be considered marital property and if the assets are subject to distribution
- Whether a spouse can be compelled to pay alimony or child support because he or she is the beneficiary of a trust
- Whether a trust itself can be compelled to make the payments
When these issues arise in divorce, they can have a significant impact on the outcome of the matter.
