In-Person Live | Contracts Are Sexy Too (2021 Family Law Fall Program)

Some family law practitioners may consider contracts to be boring or a necessary evil, but the 2021 Family Law Fall Program takes a deep dive into this practice and shows attendees that "contracts are sexy too."

Start off with a review of premarital agreements, the use of cohabitation agreements for clients who do not plan to marry and what options are available when a marriage is on the rocks — including separation agreements, parenting agreements and support agreements.

Then explore the ins and outs of resolving a family law dispute through mediation, arbitration or litigation.


  • Let the Good Times Roll, Part One: Cohabitation Agreements
  • Let the Good Times Roll, Part Two: Premarital Agreements
  • On the Rocks
  • Sealing the Deal: Mediation
  • Managing the Chaos: Arbitration
  • All Heck Broke Loose: Breach of Contract
