Originally presented:  November 16, 2018     |     Course length:  3.0 hours

An Update on Spousal Maintenance and Antenuptial Litigation Trends Statewide  (75 MINUTES)
A panel of experienced family lawyers from around the state will reflect on recent case law, including Curtis v. Curtis and Kremer v. Kremer, and share their insights about current spousal maintenance and antenuptial litigation trends. You will learn whether there are regional differences in how courts are interpreting these issues and how to best position your case for success. Discussion topics will include:

  • How will “consideration,” “procedural fairness” and “full disclosure” be defined by the courts in antenuptial litigation?
  • How should lawyers address investment returns and retirement in spousal maintenance analysis?
  • Should lawyers retain financial experts for antenuptial planning?
  • What legislative changes may be proposed to address the lack of certainty in both areas?
