Modest Means Moves: Preparing For and Trying the Modest Means Move-Away Case

Leslie Ellen Shear, JD, CFLS, Mike J. Kretzmer, JD, CFLS, Gitu Bhatia, Psy.D.
One of the most challenging situations in Family Court is the presentation of a “move-away” case where the litigants have modest means. Judges are often confronted with poorly conducted move-away trials that do not give the Court the information necessary for wise decisions, and unduly consume court time and resources. This program will lay out how move-away cases can best be organized and presented by parties and counsel to assist the Court in developing long-distance parenting plan orders. There will also be discussion of alternatives to court resolution and how to be sensitive to cultural issues.
