Join EPCNYC for an evening with Joshua S. Rubenstein, Esq. for a presentation on
THE IMPACT OF MATRIMONIAL LAWS UPON

This talk will review the matrimonial law considerations (in both common and civil law jurisdictions) that need to be taken into account when doing estate planning for couples with multijurisdictional contacts. In particular, it will cover the various requirements for entering into and ending marriages (whether by death or divorce); the use of marital agreements; the use of trusts and other entities, property regimes, and community property considerations.
