This course will teach the student practitioner the basics of handling a family law case from the moment a client walks in the door. We will address fee agreements and ethics of running a law practice, with a focus of special issues in family law. The students will work a case (based on a fact scenario), including the drafting of a petition for dissolution, preparing and filing a motion for temporary orders for support, legal decision-making, and parenting time, conducting a mock temporary orders hearing, calculating child support in AZ, developing a parenting plan and mediating a case (including drafting of a position statement). They will also learn how to effectively deal with difficult clients who have personality disorders or take unreasonable positions.
