Irreconcilable Differences? Family Law Discovery and Trusts

William Ryden co-authored an article for the Winter 2016 edition of ACFLS Family Law Specialist with the Hon. Isabelle R. Cohen, retired judge for the Family Law Department for the Los Angeles Superior Court, and Judith R. Forman, a Certified Family Law Specialist.

The article, titled “Irreconcilable Differences? Family Law Discovery and Trusts,” addressed the public policy issues that arise in the California Family Code, the Probate Code and the Code of Civil Procedure when a party in a family law proceeding involving child or spousal support is the beneficiary of one or more trusts that could be considered income on which a support order could be based, and the extent to which that trust information is discoverable.
