Family law planning and estate planning often have similar issues. However, the way the rules apply can be quite different and it is possible for a strategy structured to achieve a positive estate planning outcome to have a negative family law outcome (and vice versa) if these issues are not considered simultaneously.
In this webinar we will examine the relationship between family law litigation and the estate planning process. We will use a hypothetical scenario to consider the factors relevant in both family law property disputes and deceased estate claims and the issues to be considered when implementing strategies to avoid one or both.
We will also cover:
- the factors relevant when determining a family law property settlement
- the use of family trusts, testamentary trusts and Binding Financial Agreements (colloquially called prenups) in the estate planning process and how these are treated in family law disputes
- family law claims following the death of a party
- the assets available for challenge in an estate dispute, the people who can make a claim and the things that matter
- strategies to avoid an estate challenge and how these are treated in family law proceedings.
The webinar will be recorded, so, if you are unable to attend at the advertised time, we will send you the recording for future viewing.
