Jennifer Bingham will be speaking at Boston Probate and Estate Planning Forum on November 6, 2019

Jennifer Bingham of Saponaro Bingham LLP and Megan Knox of McDonald and Kanyuk, who will lead a discussion addressing what happens when trusts and divorce collide as part of the Boston Probate and Estate Planning Forum.  Attorneys Bingham and Knox will explore factors that the trial court considers in weighing an equitable division of the “marital estate”, the “ascertainable distribution standard” and its impact on the analysis, and when a trust interest or expectancy is a sufficient property interest to be included in the divisible marital estate.   These cases are fact driven and our panel will highlight practical aspects of drafting trusts to protect family interests and highlight relevant recent caselaw.
