CLE: Disclosures & DissoMaster in a Dissolution Case

Program Overview:

This program will provide a basic overview of the financial disclosure forms required in a family law dissolution matter, with practice tips and pointers for preparing these forms. Our speakers will discuss how to obtain information from clients to ensure that the forms accurately reflect the client’s financial circumstances and are completed in a sufficient and thorough manner to reduce the need for discovery and assist in obtaining temporary and permanent relief.

Included in this presentation will be instruction on how to apply this information and input it into the DissoMaster program to calculate child support, along with a discussion of various factors affecting child support and spousal support orders. The discussion will also cover a range of economic households, from very low income to high asset.
