Litigating contested divorces

Tuesday June 05 , 2012

NOTE: This training is only open to attorneys and summer associates from Corporate Partner firms participating in the inMotion 2012 Summer Associate Program, who have been assigned contested divorce matters.

Attorneys and summer associates will be trained to represent inMotion clients in litigated divorce actions in Supreme Court. Procedural and substantive aspects will be discussed in detail. Issues to be addressed will include: equitable distribution of marital property, maintenance, child support, and child custody and visitation.

Summer associates will work under the supervision of admitted attorneys from their firms. If cases are not resolved by the end of the summer, supervising attorneys will handle cases until completion. Assigned pro bono cases will require one or more court appearances.
