I hope that my readers had a wonderful Fourth of July. It’s one of my favorite holidays. As I noted in this previous post, I am completing a family/matrimonial law seminar series with Deborah Kaminetzky, Esq. The next seminar will be held on July 12, 2011 from 9:30-11am at the Marriott Hotel in Farmingdale, New York. It costs $25 to attend and you must RSVP ahead of time (space is limited).
In addition to the new “no fault” divorce law, grounds for divorce, child support, child custody/visitation, spousal maintenance, parental alienation, family offenses, the duty to report family offenses, and expert witnesses in a family law dispute, we will now be discussing three additional important issues. First, we will also be discussing prenuptial agreements (read my views on the topic here). Second, we will be discussing a myriad of family law issues pertaining to same sex marriage pursunt the NY Marriage Equality Act. Third, if we have time, we will also briefly touch on Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) such as mediation.
Please note that these seminars are geared specifically for mental health professional; however, there have been other people who have expressed interest in attending, including attorneys. Regardless of your profession, if you are interested in attending the seminar please email me for a copy of the registration form. Everyone is welcome.
If you are a member of the agriculture community, I hope to have a webinar on NY Matrimonial Law For Farm Families (discussing both prenuptual agreements and divorce) later on this fall/winter. Please email me directly if you have a special interest in this webinar. Your interest and participation will be confidential.
Finally, as I previously noted, we hope to have a webinar this fall for mental health professionals who cannot attend the live seminar. If you cannot attend the upcoming seminar in Long Island or Queens but are interested in participating in the webinar, please email me at email@example.com.
