Seminar to look at real estate issues in divorce proceedings

Deciding to end a marriage is never a simple decision. Determining how to divide up the family property is no easier. The Oakland County Bar Association (OCBA) Family Law and Real Estate Law Committees will explain the real estate issues involved in any divorce during the seminar “A House Divided” on Thursday, April 28, from 5 to 6 p.m. at the Oakland County Bar Association Offices.
This seminar will cover common issues in divorce proceedings including who retains ownership of real property after the divorce, the effect of various legal instruments designed to transfer property interests, and the constitutionality of current proposed state legislation regarding dower.  

Presenters will discuss the pitfalls to avoid, and how to ensure each client will be in the best possible financial situation at the end of the case.  

Presenters include attorney Lisa D. Stern of Hertz Schram and the Law Offices of Lisa Stern; Dion Roddy of Bowyer and Midtgard PC; and Tobias Lipsky, general counsel at Schneiderman & Sherman PC.

Stern’s practice focuses on all aspects of family law and the complex issues regarding valuation and division of assets including large marital estates. Roddy also practices family law, focusing on all real estate issues including dower. As general counsel for Schneiderman & Sherman PC, Lipski closely tracks Michigan law regarding the transfer of property during divorce. 

Pre-registration for this seminar is encouraged, as seating is limited. The pre-registration fee is $20 for OCBA members, $10 OCBA New Lawyers (P73649+) and $40 for all non-members.  Registration fees at the door will be $40 for OCBA members and $50 for all non-members.
