Divorce and Remarriage Planning

It's been said that marriage is often due to lack of judgment, divorce to lack of patience and remarriage to lack of memory.

Divorce rates in the United states have been diminishing the last several decades, except for Baby Boomers, where there has been an amazing increase. Moreover, the aging Baby Boomers and their parents are increasing losing their spouses to death. According to a University of California study, 61% of widowers are engaged in a new romantic relationship within 25 months of their wife’s death, while only 19% of the widows had a new relationship. 20% of men in second marriages marry someone who is at least ten years younger than them. This presentation will focus on two related issues. First, it will provide some practical and tax insights to planning for a divorce. Second it will focus on the estate planning impact of a client’s new marriage.

Join us as Jeff Scroggin shares practical and tax insights to planning for a divorce as well as the estate planning impact of a client’s new marriage.
