Special Immigrant Juvenile Status and the Family Court Order Process
Attorneys attending this program are given a historical perspective to the phenomenon of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) and the evolution of the laws that affect them.
They are provided an in-depth look at the laws enabling the relief and a step-by-step guide on how to obtain a custody order in North Carolina from filing with the clerk of court to the final custody hearing.
This program covers the best practices for applying for special immigrant juvenile status (SIJS) with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and looks at current trends in North Carolina.
Participants walk through several common case scenarios in engaging small groups. The expectation is that each participant in this training accepts at least two pro bono cases from Legal Services of Southern Piedmont (LSSP) within a year of the training date representing a UAC residing in North Carolina.
The attorney will be fully supported by LSSP with technical assistance and guidance.
A special thank you to Legal Services of Southern Piedmont and the North Carolina Justice Center for their help with this program.

Strange Days Indeed: Understanding and Navigating the Changing Legal Marketplace
Whether we like it or not, the legal marketplace is changing.
Once known as a professional calling, lawyers in firms of all sizes are now being faced with the application of business principles in order to just maintain pace.
Clients are demanding better, faster, and cheaper legal services, and they have begun to look to non-traditional legal service providers to meet their needs.
To know how to respond to these challenges, lawyers should be aware of what led to them and how structural changes in the practice of law can alter—for good or ill—the future of the practice.

The Alimony Tour - Not Starring John Cleese (2015 Family Law Section Annual Meeting)
Your closing argument is finished.
You sit down, exhausted, to a client scribbling furiously and demanding why you didn’t mention that time he yelled at her mom in front of the kids. And the time he forgot her birthday. And the time he refused to go to her family reunion.
You talked about his late nights and hidden texts. You talked about his anger and control and verbal abuse. You talked about her years at home with the academically gifted children and how much work that “job” truly was. You talked about all of the parties she threw, social functions she attended, and contacts she made to increase the visibility of his business and his earning potential.
What more does she want . . . alimony is like throwing darts in the dark.
They grilled her on her crazy spending, job possibilities, and lack of bedroom skills. They suggested she had an “emotional affair” with her Starbucks barista and that she drank wine like it was water.
What were you to do . . . alimony is like throwing darts in the dark.
You told every sordid detail about their twenty-three year marriage, but what did the Judge think was important? Is it really only about the numbers? Why is the outcome of an alimony claim so uncertain?
This annual meeting CLE provides unmatched insight on the topic of alimony by sharing the ins and outs about the subject and trial tips from some of the best. We surveyed our NC district court judges, so if you want to know what the Judges are doing and thinking, you need to buy your tickets now for The Alimony Tour.
