"What the Family Law Attorney Needs to Know About Real Estate"

The real estate in a dissolution of marriage case may not have the urgency and priority of other issues, but it can have long lasting consequences for both client and attorney. No attorney wants a call from a former client who is at a closing for refinancing or selling the property and who is dismayed to find the former spouse's name is still on the title. The checklists, forms, links, and resources provided in this presentation will assist the practitioner in disposing of real estate interests completely and accurately.
