The Interplay between Divorce and Probate Cases—What, Where, When and How?
Understand the issues you might face in both contested and uncontested divorce cases where there is a disabled spouse involved. In contested cases, how do you divide assets when one spouse is disabled and litigate joint-tenancy assets? Handle dissipation and guardianship/POA appointments? Manage cost concerns when three or more attorneys are required? In uncontested cases, how do you create a settlement agreement? Determine whether a guardianship is required in the case of a disabled spouse? Best divide and preserve assets and allocate spousal support?
