Show Notes

When is it safe to put your house in a trust?  That's a question that went all the way to the Supreme Court this year... and spoiler alert, the answer is that the only way to put the family home out of reach of your beloved is to be upfront about it (and contract out).  What was the crux of the case?  What have we learned about section 44? And what should lawyers be advising their clients?  Find out what it's like to take a case to the Supreme Court, why you'd clone a hard drive, and what Taylor Swift has to do with it all in this episode of Divorce Cafe!
