Nearly 50 years ago when the Beatles wrote "When I'm 64", Paul McCartney wondered to his future wife whether she would still love him in his old age. Today, with life expectancies on the rise and the rate of elder divorce continuing to increase, the now 73 year-old Paul might well be asking his song-bride whether she will waive his pension.

Join family law attorney Jonathan Fields of Fields and Dennis, and elder law attorneys Steven Cohen and Patricia Keane Martin of Pabian Russell, for a panel discussion on representing elderly divorce clients. Discussion topics include:

  • Is alimony a possibility for clients who divorce after age 65?
  • Guardian-initiated divorces
  • Division of retirement accounts as assets vs. income stream
  • The impact divorce can have on Medicaid asset protection strategies
  • Estate planning for older clients
