Advanced Skills & Techniques for Family Law Practice 2021

Product ID: CA3229D
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

Co-produced with the Family Law Section of the State Bar of Wisconsin

Challenging times and big changes

COVID-19 changed the way family law attorneys practice law and gave divorcing families new issues to resolve. Advanced Skills and Techniques for Family Law Practice 2021 will explore challenges that linger for families as the U.S. moves into the next phases of the pandemic.

Clashing co-parents

Disagreements over parenting decisions are par for the course in family law matters, but COVID-19 has prompted new arguments over everything from the safety of vaccines to the risks of traveling with unvaccinated children. Be prepared for divorcing parents who don’t see eye-to-eye on immunizing their kids. Explore remedies when parents can’t agree on in-person vs. virtual learning. Review motions to suspend placement.

Parties’ rights

In-person court proceedings have resumed in Wisconsin, while virtual hearings remain an option for a wide variety of family court hearings including divorces, status updates, and name changes. Discuss the pros and cons of in-person hearings and examine the rise in stipulated divorce by affidavit — despite the statutory requirement for an in-person final hearing.
