Preparing Good Court Orders Webinar On-Demand

On-Demand
Live date: 
Friday, December 5, 2014 - 12:00pm
Price: 
$50.00
The webinar examines the essentials of court orders in abuse, neglect, dependency, and termination of parental rights proceedings. It is organized into four segments: (1) required elements of an order, (2) findings of fact, (3) the drafting process and entry of judgments, and (4) federal IV-E requirements.In juvenile cases, the challenges of drafting good orders are exacerbated by the legislature's unusually prescriptive approach to orders required in abuse, neglect, dependency, and termination of parental rights cases. Despite the challenges, getting it right the first time benefits everyone. A reversal caused by an error or omission in drafting an order can be frustrating, costly, and time consuming in any case. In a juvenile case, it may also delay or disrupt a child's adoption, postpone a child's reunification with his or her family, or simply leave a child's status and a parent's rights in a state of limbo for an extended period. Participants in this webinar will look at the essentials of well-written juvenile court orders and discuss the process of drafting and entering orders that are legally correct.
