This is our LAST episode of The High Net Worth Divorce Playbook series, and today’s experts explain the critical role of Trust and Estates attorneys as part of your All-Star divorce support team.  While most people assume that a Trust and Estate attorney is only needed at the end or AFTER the divorce, Nancy and Britt highlight the financial advantage of enlisting them from the beginning.


We discuss the Trust and Estate attorney’s role in assisting your matrimonial attorney as they determine what assets CAN be considered in equitable distribution in the complex world of family trusts.  We cover everything from beneficiaries of 3rd party trusts and YOUR parents estate planning documents as well as Wills, health care proxies, power of attorneys, deeds, estate taxes, legacy planning and more.  This is another jam packed episode with tons of money saving recommendations, so grab your pen and let’s get started!
