Description: Against a background of Constitutional and federal law, state law is the primary law of marriage and divorce in the United States. Basic principles and models of divorce, including alimony, child custody, and property division, remain fairly consistent through all states and territories. Applicable law, rules, procedures, and terminology may vary significantly from state to state and within states from city to city. “Custody” and “alimony” in one court may be “parenting time” and “spousal support” in another. However, from traditional models to modern innovation, through variations in practice and terminology, the basic underlying purpose of this area of practice is to resolve all issues in dissolution of a marriage, in a manner that is efficient and fair to all persons involved. 
This course concentrates on practice and procedure in the area of marriage dissolution case management. Chapters in the course begin with the legal framework that provides the substantive and procedural structure for marriage and dissolution; legal requirements, obligations, and benefits of a valid marriage; the process of marriage dissolution; issues to be resolved in dissolution cases; information intake, client interviews, and case assessment; preparation and initiation of a dissolution case; discovery in a dissolution case; and resolution of the case, including entry, enforcement, and modification of court orders.
