The Intersection of Family Law/Elder Law and Bankruptcy; Wish you knew the issues 

We will present four case studies. Each study will include topics that overlap such as the elderly divorce client, special needs children, no money, etc.  

Don’t miss this panel presentation! Our discussion will include the following: 

  • Consumer bankruptcy filings: considerations for  Ch. 7 (liquidation) or Ch. 13 (reorganization).
  •  Property transfers and look back periods:  coordination of actions and elections under the different bodies of law (family/elder/bankruptcy).
  •  Property exemptions for the client:  State of Connecticut compared to the federal bankruptcy exemptions.
  •  Medicaid and Long Term Care issues.
  •  Impact of special needs trust planning on public benefit recipients.
  •  Financial Support for disabled children after age 18.
  •  Must clients facing possible Medicaid requirements need to or benefit from divorce to preserve their finances? 
  •  Negotiating a divorce settlement when one client is mentally incapacitated, but not adjudicated incompetent.
