2002 Family Law Forum

February 8, 2002

Keeping in mind the increasing number of family law practitioners within its ranks, the NHTLA, renowned as the expert in CLE programs in New Hampshire, offers this program as its only family law seminar included within its annual CLE program. Last year’s program was one of the NHTLA’s most well attended, well received and highly rated CLE programs ever. This year’s presenters are again all experienced and highly regarded New Hampshire practitioners. They have agreed to be on hand to listen to the program, offer their comments, and provide an invaluable forum to answer questions from the registrants via an interactive forum.

This unique program will present a day-long, in-depth analysis of certain aspects of a typical divorce matter in New Hampshire. Particular emphasis will be placed upon the practicality and efficiency of the settling of domestic matters. As well, the presenters will provide clinical demonstrations and practical discussions of various developing areas of the law. Presentations from an expert witness such as a guardian ad litem and an experienced mediator will provide insight into both posturing the case for settlement and then preparing for and carrying through with an effective trial presentation. 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 comment upon the presentation. You will receive valuable information and strategies on such issues as custody, visitation, child support, alimony, and equitable property division. This seminar is a must for all domestic practitioners, whether seasoned trial lawyers or less experienced family law attorneys.
