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.
