The speakers are all experienced and highly regarded New Hampshire practitioners. In addition, Circuit Court Judges 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 Circuit Court Judges will remark upon the presentation.
You will receive helpful information and instructive strategies on handling such issues as post divorce litigation and other past divorce modifications; reviewing changes in the law of child support and alimony; effectively representing clients involved in proceedings involving reproductive rights; how to skillfully handle your law practice; and effectively involving (or not, as the case may be) mental health professionals in your cases. Other instruction includes how to handle State Retirement QDRO’s and other retirement plans. Additionally, there will be plenty of time during the day to ask questions of the presenters and the judiciary on other topics you are facing a family law practitioner.

This seminar is a must for all those practicing in the area of domestic relations, whether seasoned trial lawyers or less experienced family law attorneys.
