Understanding the Fine Print: What You Need to Know Before and After Marriage

Online • November 22, 2016

This Jam Session will provide crucial knowledge of how the fine print in the marriage contract may affect you and your finances, and how to protect yourself.

Tuesday, November 22, 2016 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EST

When you say "I do," your new marriage status immediately triggers literally hundreds of laws to which you are bound, with potentially huge economic consequences for you. For example, consider this:

  • Depending on where you live, you might be liable for your spouse's medical bills.
  • Upon divorce, your spouse might be entitled to a portion of your business, or alimony.

This Jam Session will provide crucial knowledge of how the fine print in the marriage contract may affect you and your finances, and how to protect yourself.

Karen Winner is an attorney in New York and author of the nationally-acclaimed book, Divorced From Justice, (Harper Collins, 1996). As a legal consumer advocate, her findings have been widely quoted in the national press. Additionally, Karen has joined John Jay College in New York as an adjunct instructor of a brand new course she developed: Financial Fraud in Divorce.
