2017 DE Trust Conference | “Deal or No Deal” - The Intersection of Third Party Trusts and Divorce Law

Tuesday, October 24, 2017 - Wednesday, October 25, 2017

At the 12th annual Delaware Trust Conference, over fifty of the nation’s top trust, legal and wealth management experts provided the latest information on Delaware trusts.

Private Client associate Emily Pickering engaged in a panel discussion of how third party trusts fare when a beneficiary goes through a divorce. Is a discretionary interest marital property? Can it be considered a resource for property division or orders of support or alimony? Can a court pierce the trust to enforce a judgment of the beneficiary’s former spouse or child, or does it have other effective remedies? The answers may surprise you.

Panel includes:

  • Emily B. Pickering, Esq., Associate, Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP
  • Richard W. Nenno, Esq., Senior Trust Counsel and Managing Director, Wilmington Trust Company
  • Jocelyn Margolin Borowsky, Esq., Partner, Duane Morris LLP
