Join us as we concentrate on financial issues surrounding divorce proceedings. From working with forensic accountants and making the best use of their reports to an update on the changes to first responder and judicial officers pension structures, this track will deal with complex issues and help develop the family law practitioner’s skills regarding complex financial issues.
On day one, we will concentrate on business valuations – how to read them, how to prepare for settlement negotiations, and how to cross-examine your expert. We will then turn to how recent changes in the law are impacting settlement negotiations for clients who are active duty or retired military service members and their families. Day two starts out with a discussion of captive insurance, moving on to the difficulties in calculating settlements when first responder and judicial officers pensions are in the mix, and concludes with our Moot Court presentation. Day three completes the Family Law track with the annual review of case law and legislative updates, a panel discussion on practical hot tips, and a review of the new Family Law Rules.
