About the Program
Separation agreements are the most common tool used to resolve a divorce case. It is imperative that the drafting of this document is precise, clear, and effectively sets forth the intention of the parties. Often times issues with these agreements do not become clear until years down the road. This program will offer tips and tools for drafting agreements to prevent post-judgment issues, provide explanation and guidance about tax, support and asset division issues, and provide examples of common dilemmas and mistakes in drafting agreements in a dissolution matter. Protect your clients and protect yourself.
You Will Learn
· Strategies, tips and tools to implement in drafting agreements to prevent post-judgment issues
· Common dilemmas and mistakes in drafting agreements--and how to avoid them
· Red flags to look out for when reviewing agreements drafted by other attorneys
Who Should Attend
Any attorney in the field of family law, whether they have been practicing for years or just starting out. New attorneys will learn about issues in drafting separation agreements they can share with attorneys they work with and use in their own practice. Experienced attorneys will learn about some common pitfalls they may or may not have encountered in their practice as the field of family law changes. Attorneys outside the family law field will benefit as well if they review separation agreements in conjunction with other fields, such as estate planning and tax law.
