New Estate Planning/Family Law Crossover Book

I am very excited about my newest YouTube video — an interview with Jon Heywood, a CEB’s Publications Attorney and one of the editors of  CEB’s new book Crossover Issues in Estate Planning and Family Law.

This crossover book is so important because issues involving the family often extend into the estate planning area.  For example, some family law issues with potential consequences for estate planning include

  • Requirements for a valid premarital agreement,
  • Identifying separate versus community property, and
  • The effect of bifurcating a family law case to only terminate marital status.

Similarly, someone seeking divorce may have an existing will or trust that must be revised, or have survivor benefits that must be accounted for in both estate planning and divorce.  These are just some of the crossover issues addressed in CEB’s new book.

And, the book is available now at a prepublication discount price!
