Do you have what you need to advise on the complex legal issues facing elderly clients?

Ontario’s families are increasingly shaped by remarriages and later in life common-law partnerships. Practitioners who advise elderly clients understand how to best advise their clients in this complicated family dynamic.

Our expert faculty will discuss best practices generally for advising elderly clients and their families, including topics such as:

  • Claims available to spouses if they are left nothing in the will or if their spouse dies intestate
  • Are spousal support orders or domestic contracts enforceable after death?
  • When a common-law partner dies intestate, what recourse does the surviving spouse have?
  • Risks and concerns with jointly-held assets between parents and adult children
  • What is a “predatory marriage” and how are the courts responding to them?
