Afterward, a panel of experts will explore the different legal questions raised by the fact pattern, including issues on evidence and ethics. This seminar also will host a panel discussion of property division post-Kunze. A bankruptcy practitioner will examine how bankruptcy reform has affected family law issues such as domestic support obligations, the homestead exemption and the automatic stay.
