Family Law to be explored at NBI seminar

National Business Institute will present a seminar on “Advanced Family Law” on Thursday, Jan. 12, from 8 a.m. to 4:40 p.m. at Holiday Inn Express & Suites Southfield-Detroit, 25100 Northwestern Highway in Southfield.

Family law is growing increasingly more complex. The potential complications of high-wealth or high-conflict divorce can intimidate some attorneys into shying away from such cases. NBI has compiled the most confounding and involved issues attorneys are likely to encounter in practice and put its faculty to the task of demonstrating how to successfully tackle them.

Attendees will learn how to:

• Explore the most difficult areas of family law practice and get solutions from seasoned attorney faculty.

• Protect the rights of cohabitating couples and clarify the boundaries of such protection in the eyes of the law.

• Get the latest updates on paternity law in recent court decisions.

• Effectively dispute false allegations of abuse to help your client fight for custody.

• Obtain the best settlement for your client by conquering the division of complex assets.

• Suspect the opposing spouse is hiding assets? Learn how to track them down and include them in the settlement.

• Get tips on effectively arguing for and against contempt orders.

• Get new tactics for enforcement, modification and termination of child support and spousal maintenance.

• Make the best use of forensic accountants and valuation experts to ensure all assets are on deck at the time of settlement.

• Help clients think ahead: find out how divorce affects estate plans and what new provisions must be made.

• Safeguard clients from allegations of financial misconduct with timely advice on the consequences of their spending.
