The stakes are increasingly high in contested domestic violence cases when child custody is also involved. With vastly expanded grounds for obtaining a protective order, the landscape for handling the child custody facets has changed. A finding of domestic “abuse” triggers a presumption that tips the scales against a joint legal and physical custody award. This program will focus on the practical aspects of navigating through the Domestic Violence Protection Act in child custody proceedings, from intake to resolution. You will hear litigation and resolution strategies from experts in the field and, whether you represent the petitioner or the respondent, learn how best to take on a case involving these difficult issues.
