ADFP Greater Boston October 2014 Meeting

Insurance and Divorce

When a divorce agreement specifies child support and/or alimony, it will usually also specify life insurance to cover the eventuality that the payor might pass away before his or her obligations are fulfilled. The divorce agreement may specify coverage, ownership, what type of insurance to use. However, many of the implementation details will be left to the parties.

In this interactive discussion we will cover financial planning best practices with respect to insurance in divorce. We will address all aspect of the insurance decision in divorce: whether to use existing policies; who should be the owner, who should pay the premiums, and other factors.

The discussion will be led by Chris Chen, CFP, CDFA . Chris is the principal of Insight Financial Strategists LLC a Registered Investment Advisor in Waltham MA. In his divorce practice, Chris works with lawyers, mediators and their clients to fully understand the financial complexities surrounding divorce. Chris provides comprehensive analysis of the short-term and long-term impacts of proposed divorce settlements; he evaluates the tax implications of property division, spousal support, child support, retirement and investment accounts and how they impact clients and their families at divorce and well after divorce. Chris's unique Concierge Plan for Divorce Attorneys and Mediators provides end to end financial divorce support to mediators and attorneys.

Chris is the Director of the Greater Boston Chapter of the ADFP. He is also a member of the Massachusetts Financial Planning Association, the Massachusetts Council on Family Mediation, the Massachusetts Collaborative Law Council and the Financial Planning Association.
