About the Program

Unfortunately, sometimes clients going through a divorce or other family law crises wind up with a concurrent criminal case. A divorce attorney needs to understand the ramifications of criminal court orders and consequences to effectively give advice in cases where there may be competing and divergent interests at play.

You Will Learn

  • About the criminal arraignment and litigation process
  • Collateral issues for your clients, including 2nd amendment issues
  • What a Fernando A hearing is and why having one is critical to protecting your client's interests
  • How the interplay between civil restraining orders, standing criminal restraining orders, and protective orders impact a client and case

Who Should Attend

Attorneys who practice divorce and family law and want a better understanding of the consequences of a domestic violence criminal case, and how to handle a client who has both a criminal and divorce case pending at the same time.
