It's easier than ever to have long-distance relationships and/or to relocate. An important first step in any lawsuit is getting personal jurisdiction. How is that different now that we are so mobile, when people date online, etc.? How is that the same? During this session, we consider recent alienation of affection/criminal conversation and domestic violence cases that address these issues.
Emily C. Jeske, Bosquez Porter Family Law, Raleigh

Seth A. Glazer, Godley Glazer & Funk PLLC, Charlotte
Technology makes it easy to keep tabs on people, with or without their knowledge and consent. What is the law or the emerging trend around tracking people using seemingly innocuous means, such as "Find My iPhone" or AirTags? What if an ex places an AirTag in the child's backpack without telling the other co-parent? Do co-parents have any expectation of privacy or is it waived by virtue of sharing custody?
2:30 With a Little Help from My Friends: Practice Ideas in This Modern World
Amy L. Britt, Parker Bryan Family Law, Raleigh Evan B. Horwitz, Tharrington Smith LLP, Raleigh Katie H. King, Wake Family Law Group, Raleigh
Explore some of the issues we face in our practice related to parties' mobility that there isn't law for yet, or even a common practice in how it's dealt with in court. For example, working from home and claiming tax write-offs has an impact on your expenses and therefore your needs/ability to pay in support cases. Keeping in mind people may move to a state that has common law marriage, community property, etc., may affect what we write in contracts like SAPSA, postnups, prenups and cohab agreements. This is a question-and-answer session with a panel format. Audience participation is encouraged.
