Family Court Trial Institute 2020: Orders of Protection
This fast-paced mock trial program will be almost all demonstration by experienced matrimonial and family lawyers representing all relevant parties in a family offense proceeding: Petitioner, Respondent and their minor children. View the direct and cross examinations of a husband and wife performed by the attorneys for the “parties” and the Attorney for the Child (AFC). New York Judges on the faculty will rule on evidentiary issues, when necessary, in the course of this simulated trial and offer valuable insight on deficient/successful petitions. You will view and hear valuable tips on properly framing questions and getting material into evidence (or keeping it out!), while educating the Judge on its importance and applicability in the case. Time has been allotted within each topic for audience questions and commentary by the faculty.
Two sample petitions and temporary restraining orders (TROs) form the basis of this program, along with Family Court Act Article 8, various provisions of the Penal Law, and highlights of significant cases regarding the threshold requirements for satisfying a family offense and what constitutes “an intimate relationship” for jurisdiction purposes. All the necessary materials and simulated “evidence” will be distributed to registrants so they may follow the proceedings, in in addition to being available online. This course will provide you with a fresh look at proven trial techniques and styles of the successful family lawyers on the faculty.
