Join speaker Sarah A. Brooks for a presentation on “A Beginner’s Guide to Death and Divorce” on Thursday, January 9, 2020 at noon. Ms. Brooks will provide an overview of the nuances of both death and divorce and how the probate code and the family law code intersect when an individual dies during a family law dispute.

The discussion will cover a basic understanding of the proper characterization of community and separate property assets and how they will ultimately be distributed to the spouse/former spouse, beneficiaries, or heirs as well as other issues to consider when administering a decedent’s trust or estate.
