Legal Aid to Co-Sponsor Invitation-Only Advanced Family Law Litigation Training
Legal Aid is excited about a new training opportunity for experienced pro bono attorneys who want to take the next step in advancing their family law litigation skills. Along with Bread for the City and the DC Bar Pro Bono Program, we have arranged an invitation-only advanced training on property distribution issues that may arise in divorce and child custody cases.
This training will provide pro bono attorneys with information and skills necessary to litigate more complex custody and divorce cases, covering topics such as:
- dividing marital property/assets and debts
- tax consequences of the division of property
- requesting possession of a marital home
If you have experience litigating pro bono family law cases and are interested in developing additional expertise in divorce-related topics, please contact Stephanie Troyer at firstname.lastname@example.org by October 24, 2012 for more information. The training will be held on Thursday, November 1, 2012, from 1-5 p.m. at the DC Bar offices, 1101 K Street, NW.
