2003 Family Law Forum

June 20, 2003

Recognizing the increasing number of family law practitioners within its ranks, the NHTLA, renowned as the expert in CLE programs in New Hampshire, offers this newly instituted annual seminar involving divorce and family law issues. The speakers are all experienced and highly regarded New Hampshire practitioners. In addition, several Marital Masters will be on hand to listen to the program, offer their comments, and provide an invaluable forum to answer questions from the registrants.

This unique program will present a day-long, in-depth analysis of topical issues in the practice of domestic relations.

Registrants will receive valuable forms, discovery materials and various selected pleadings in order to maximize this valuable learning opportunity. While the practice pointers are presented, counsel and participants will discuss the topics in-depth and the Marital Masters will comment upon the presentation. You will receive valuable information and strategies on such issues as grandparental visitation, relocation of a divorced parent, and analyzing the finances of a self-employed spouse. Other areas of discussion include the new Guardian Ad Litem Advisory Board and the developing arena of marital mediation and alternative dispute resolution techniques.

This seminar is a must for all domestic practitioners, whether seasoned trial lawyers or less experienced family law attorneys.
