Of Prenups and Probate: Probate Litigators Discuss How to Advise Clients Through Love, Death, and the Death of Love

Event Description

Sponsored by the RCBA Trusts & Estates Section

Deadline to Register: January 7, 2020*


What happens when your client’s estate planning hasn’t kept up with your client’s relationship status?  Join Mason & Helmers probate litigators Emily Valentine-Grimm and Karin Ciano for a hair-raising journey to the intersection of Probate Place and Family Way.  We’ll discuss how old prenups create new pitfalls; how divorce affects existing beneficiary designations; how to advise clients on the elective share and other spousal rights; and whether family court or probate court is the right place to resolve your client’s dispute.  All this plus tips on drafting prenup language that will waive a future spouse’s right to statutory exempt property!

Registration and lunch will begin at 11:30 am, the CLE program will run from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm.
Lunch is included in your registration.

LUNCH: We will provide a selection of sandwiches. For dietary restrictions or a vegetarian lunch, choose the appropriate selection on the registration screen.
