The Family and Juvenile Law Section presents its annual Family Law Seminar on Oct. 26 and 27. Family law attorneys from all over the state will converge on the West Des Moines Marriott to exchange ideas and discuss the latest family law news. 

The list of speakers includes national presenters from the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, judges, and experts from across the state. Topics includes 'How To Cross-examine a Business Valuation Expert,' 'How to Support or Cross-examine a Psychologist’s Report,' and 'Special Issues in Child Support Cases.' Jim Meade will also provide attendees with his case law outline and cover some of the important issues in family law cases this year.

Attorneys who still need three hours of juvenile law credit should attend the track on Friday morning. That track covers updates on issues in juvenile cases from the Department of Human Services (DHS) and the Uniform Child-custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act/Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children (UCCJEA/ICPC). It also addresses disproportionality in the system. The event has also been approved for 15.5 state hours which includes 3.25 ethics.

On Thursday night, the Family Law Chair’s reception offers a chance to network with peers. The event is hosted by BCC Advisers and the ISBA Family Law Section. Registration is available on the ISBA website.
