Divorce: Helping Clients Move On with Financial Stability

April 17 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Free

Please join Philadelphia VIP for a Divorce CLE training led by Michael Fingerman and Mary Cushing Doherty. In Philadelphia, even the simplest divorces are nearly impossible to obtain without an attorney. Multiple waiting periods, arcane names for pleadings, and other procedural hurdles make the process arduous for pro se litigants, but these are normal challenges for attorneys. A recent study revealed that divorce litigants in Philadelphia were 87.4% more likely to obtain a divorce within three years if they were represented by an attorney. Unfortunately, 85% of Philadelphia Family Court litigants proceed pro se. This training will deliver practical information on combating this profound access to justice gap by representing low-income Philadelphians in divorce matters. This training will include information on equitable distribution. Attendees can earn two (2) substantive CLE credits free of charge provided they accept a VIP case within six months of the training. Lunch will be provided.
