Introduction to family law issues, including proceedings in Family Court and NYS Supreme Court, as well as out-of-court alternative routes (such as mediation, arbitration, separation agreements, prenuptial agreements), enforcement procedures, and agencies with an ancillary role in family law. This course covers the practical aspects of family law in New York State. In addition to general knowledge of family law issues, the focus will be on four areas: custody, child support, separation agreements, and divorce actions. Students will learn which courts handle which types of cases, filing procedures, ethical issues, and substantive law.
