Upcoming Events

Tuesday, March 24, 2015, from 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
Please join the ACBA Family Law Section and speakers Charlie Burak and Eileen Preville for a program on the division of restricted employment benefits. This program will cover the purpose of each type of plan, including stock options, RSUs, ESOP plans, and stock appreciation plans. Our speakers will also cover the basics of division and apportionment, dive into tax issues, and address common problems that often accompany such division of benefits, including:
  • transfer limitations
  • support versus property characterization
  • child support “guideline” issues
  • division documents, including samples
  • confidentiality issues – blackout periods

Please visit the ACBA Calendar for additional upcoming programs.
