Practical Magic (2020 Essentials of Family Law)

This item is expired.

Unlocking the magic of family law begins with a thorough understanding of the basics.

During this two-day CLE, attendees learn the ins and outs of postseparation support and alimony, key components of civil procedure and discovery, elements of alienation of affection and criminal conversation claims, and the practice and procedure for appeals. But no foundation would be complete, of course, without a solid understanding of contempt, domestic violence and equitable distribution.

To be truly successful, you must hone the power of these family law concepts through practical application. Listen as experienced practitioners share tips for drafting child custody orders and teach how to apply the NC Child Support Guidelines, how to make and defend objections, and how to use and present illustrative or summary exhibits.

At the conclusion of this captivating program, attendees are equipped with the skills necessary to practice family law with confidence — no magic spells required.
