Beginner's Guide to Starting a Family Law Case
Saturday, September 7, 1-2:30pm
Before you begin your family law case, come to this 90-minute class to learn about the process of starting a case, and the basic steps involved in preparing your documents for filing.

You've Filed - What's Next?
Saturday, September 14, 1-2pm
Filing a family law case is the first step to getting court orders. If you cannot wait for final orders for things like child support, restraining orders and decisions on where you, the other party and/or the children may live, then temporary orders may be what you need. Come learn more about temporary orders in this one-hour class.
Working It Out with the Other Side
Saturday, September 21, 1-2pm
You need information from the other side, but how do you get it? You also need to come to an agreement, but how do you do that? This one-hour class will provide helpful information about discovery and alternative dispute resolution options, such as mediation and arbitration.
Let's Talk about Parents and Parenting Plans
Saturday, September 28, 1-2pm
When couples with children separate, they often need a parenting plan to spell out where the children reside, how parents make decisions about their children and who pays for what. If a parent isn't listed on the birth certificate, sometimes the legal parents must be decided before the parenting plan or child support can be ordered. Find out more in this one-hour focus class.
