Redressing Financial Exploitation of the Elderly in Late-Life Romance
Wealth Protection, Preservation, Recovery, and Restitution in Blended Family Disputes
Recording of a 90-minute CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE webinar will prepare family law and fiduciary litigation practitioners to handle undue influence and financial exploitation claims involving individuals who have entered or are being enticed into late-in-life romantic relationships or marriages, often brought by adult children of a prior marriage. The faculty will instruct registrants about fact patterns common to financial exploitation and undue influence claims, illustrate how to recognize financial exploitation in these relationships, how to protect family wealth and assets from potential dissipation or diversion due to interference, how to terminate exploitative situations, and best strategies and practices for uncovering the extent of and undoing any financial damage.

- What are the impact and availability of divorce and annulment?
