Jurisdictional Issues in Family Law
California Family Law Report (CFLR) is proud to present Family Law from the Experts: Jurisdictional Issues in Family Law, a live-stream webinar being held on October 14, 2022. Knowing which court has decision-making authority is fundamental to starting the case on the right path. The consequences of parties having their matter heard in one forum or another can be dramatic.
