In the increasingly complex world of child and spousal support, your clients rely upon you to be current and knowledgeable. Mistakes can be critical – and costly. Over one day, acquire the key information and contacts you need to navigate these issues with confidence.

This annual OsgoodePD program — designed and delivered by the leading family law experts – focusses on the more complex and challenging current and emerging issues in child and spousal support. This is not a quick summary of the year in review. Rather, it is an in-depth analysis of the critical issues confronting the family law bar. In this advanced program, you will acquire a solid understanding of the issues and practical applications for your clients.

Topics include:

  • The Year in Review: Round up of the most significant recent decisions in the past year
  • When is enough enough?
  • Expert panel on How To Advance the Support Case, including Judges’ DOs & DON’Ts
  • Key strategies for terminating spousal support
  • Dealing with Retirement – Double Dipping and Imputing Income
  • Can more than just the table amount of child support be ordered to equalize NDI?
