Webinar: NYS Divorce Law Essentials All Family Therapists Should Know

When:  Sep 17, 2021 from 09:00 AM to 11:00 AM (ET)

Presentation Description:

In our work with couples and families in New York State and elsewhere, questions about divorce and family law often come up. While it is not our responsibility to know all the exact legal answers to all such questions, it is important that we at least understand the questions and have some idea about the law and how it might affect our clients and their children and families. In this workshop, very experienced attorney and divorce mediator Glenn E. Dornfeld, Esq. will start by giving us a brief overview of the lay of the land in NYS divorce law. Then he will focus in on areas of the law that are especially important for us to know as family therapists, correcting misconceptions and updating us on current NYS law as applies to our clients. The goal of this talk will be to better prepare us to help couples and families through difficult situations by giving them basic, clear, accurate information so they can find the help they need and make good decisions together about their future and the future of their families.
