Continuingly mindful of the increasing number of family law practitioners within its ranks, the NHAJ, renowned as the expert in CLE programs in New Hampshire, offers this now annually held seminar involving divorce and family law issues. The speakers are all experienced and highly regarded New Hampshire practitioners. In addition, 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. Attendance at this annual CLE has in the past been very high and this CLE has been extremely well received and evaluated by the attendees. Registrants will receive valuable forms, helpful discovery materials and various selected pleadings in order to maximize this constructive learning opportunity. While the practice pointers are presented, counsel and participants will discuss the topics in-depth and the Marital Masters will remark upon the presentation.

You will receive helpful information and instructive strategies on handling such issues as enforcing child support orders; effectively representing clients involved in contested proceedings and applying the statutory factors of asset distribution; advocating for clients at parental rights modification and relocation proceedings; how to skillfully handle your mediation practice; and effectively involving the Guardian ad Litem in your cases.

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