Drafting Marital Settlement Agreements Workshop

Learn how you need to update your MSA templates after recent changes in the law, including IMDMA amendments, income shares and myriad new tax laws. This will be a HIGHLY INTERACTIVE program. Much of the day will be spent on small group work (based on practice experience) with faculty members rotating among the groups to teach best practices in MSA drafting. Attendees will work through sample provisions, drafting sections of a Marital Settlement Agreement, fixing problems, and learning preferred word choice and sentence structures. Specific topics covered will include: maintenance, property distribution, child support, parental allocation, retirement plans, and taxes.
