Program Overview:

It is the goal of the Family Law Foundations: Ancillary Financial Issues in DV Cases CLE to educate attorneys on family law financial matters and how those may impact cases involving domestic violence and hearings for Domestic Violence Protective Orders (DVPOs). This event is open to the public and ideal for attorneys who are interested in representing clients in obtaining DVPOs. During the training, attendees will learn about financial matters impacting domestic violence cases, such as child support, post separation support, alimony, and equitable distribution. Participants will be better able to advise their clients regarding the financial implications of separating from their abusive partner. The training will be beneficial for legal services attorneys, volunteer attorneys involved in Legal Aid’s Lawyer on the Line program, and family law attorneys in private practice.
