REPRESENTING VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: PART 3 - CUSTODY, SUPPORT AND VISITATION
28 Oct 2014
Register for REPRESENTING VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE: PART 3 - CUSTODY, SUPPORT AND VISITATION on Tuesday, Oct 28, 2014 12:00 PM EDT at:
Protective orders often do more than limit contact between the abuser and the victim. Because domestic violence does not occur in a vacuum, there are often issues involving the parties' children and finances that must also be addressed on a temporary basis. In addition to ordering that the abuser not abuse and limit contact with the victim, the protective order can address matters of temporary child custody and visitation, child support, spousal support, residence, and access to personal property. This webinar will focus on best practices and innovative strategies concerning these issues for pro bono attorneys assisting their indigent and low-income clients to obtain protective orders as well as relief after the protective order has been issued.
This free webinar is being submitted for 1.5 hours of MCLE credit. As a condition of registration approval, attendees are asked to certify during registration that they will provide pro bono publico legal assistance to a survivor of domestic violence in a J&DR or General District court proceeding (or make a financial contribution to a pro bono legal service provider assisting domestic violence victims). Future webinars in this series will focus on the immigration implications of VAWA-360 and U-Visas in domestic violence cases.
This webinar series is co-sponsored by the VSB Special Committee on Access to Legal Services, Good Samaritan Advocates, and the Virginia Poverty Law Center.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
