When Your Older Clients Divorce
Additional Information:
There are a growing number of divorcing baby boomers. Are you prepared for the special considerations and complex issues that may accompany this group? This program will focus on three areas of concern when your older clients seek a divorce. The panel will discuss Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid; retirement accounts and drafting settlement contracts; and issues that may arise with client competency. What effects can a divorce have on these benefits and what are the pitfalls and things to avoid to protect these assets? When dealing with elderly clients and/or a long term marriages, what should you focus on in retirement funds? There may also be unexpected issues of confidentiality when an elderly client brings a family member to a consultation as well as capacity issues that elders often face. What does an attorney do when there is an issue of lack of capacity or perhaps indications of dementia? Take this opportunity to learn more about the nuances and the special issues of senior divorce at this very informative review.
