February 6 - 11:30am -1:00pm EDT
Using Jurisdictional Statutes to Assist Domestic Violence Survivors:
Beyond the Basics
The training will build
upon the foundation established by the LRC’s previous training programs, both
telephonic and in-person, which provided participants with an overview of the
various federal and state laws that govern interstate custody cases.
The training is appropriate for
attorneys who have participated in a previous LRC training or who have some
experience with interstate custody cases.
Training topics have been selected
based upon participants’ questions from previous trainings and specific training
requests that the LRC has received. Among other topics, the LRC intends to
address the following: strategies for advising clients who are contemplating
leaving a jurisdiction with their children; the relationship between civil
protection orders that include custody provisions and custody orders that have
been issued as part of a custody or divorce case; recent and emerging trends in
practice and case law; and the basis for continuing exclusive jurisdiction in a
custody case under federal or state law. Participants will have an
opportunity to ask questions during the presentation.
Please note that the training topics are the
same as those covered by the LRC’s advanced training in April, 2012.
