What Real Estate Lawyers Need to Know About
Family Law and Estate Planning

  • What titling issues in family law affect real estate?
  • What happens with real property conveyed to one spouse’s revocable living trust that states “all to my spouse if my spouse survives me” when there is a subsequent dissolution of marriage followed by the death of a spouse, but the trust was never amended?
  • What happens with real property when a judgment of dissolution requires refinancingof a mortgage on a residence within a year and subsequent conveyance of one spouse’s interest to the other, but the refinance never takes place?
  • How does dissolution affect real property held as Tenancy by the Entirety?
  • How does Tenancy by the Entirety work with revocable living trusts?
  • What uses exist for TODIs in the context of estate planning involving revocable living trusts?
  • Land trusts and dissolution of marriage?
