Whether your clients are contemplating divorce or “conscious uncoupling,” it’s not about the law, it’s the process that matters. Using a hands-on approach, this seminar will guide participants step-by-step through the divorce process. Even the most seasoned family law attorney will find this approach useful. Learn everything from where the courthouse is located and what to file from the initial petition through the entry of a judgment. Forms, which are essential to domestic relations cases, are part of the course materials and will reflect recent legislative changes. Faculty members Paul Saucy, Joshua Kadish and Ruth Pekelder are seasoned Oregon family law practitioners with 95 collective years of experience.
