A knowledgeable paralegal is of immense value to a busy law office, and this is especially true in Family Law. Family law practitioners depend on their support teams to perform many functions in matrimonial practice and, with over 700,000 divorces in New Jersey in 2021, the need will not decline any time soon.
We have designed this program specifically for new attorneys and paralegals or legal assistants who handle family law matters. It focuses on the technical requirements, skills, and techniques they need to provide meaningful support in a 2022 family law practice.
You will learn the foundations of a successful family law case - the paperwork, the filings, and the preliminary motions. You will delve into Court Rules, review the CIS and other forms, and find out how to complete them, as well as learn practical techniques for preparing motions and pendente lite applications. It is also an excellent brush-up for attorneys who understand family law, but not necessarily litigation logistics.
