Review Civil Litigation Procedures and Know Best Practices

Marital and domestic torts are relatively new claims that combine family/divorce law and civil litigation procedures. When a client approaches you seeking representation for a divorce and marital tort, can you take the case with confidence? Are you able to decipher whether or not your client has a realistic claim? And when should the tort be filed in a separate suit or joined with the divorce? Review causes of action, defenses, third-party liabilities, and special considerations for children and custody issues. Make sure you know the ins and outs of marital torts and ensure your clients get paid. Register today!
