The seminar will feature a broad range of panelists and is intended to address questions from members of the general public as well as from professionals who are interested in information about both traditional family law as well as the growing list of alternatives to traditional court-based divorce litigation.

At this workshop you will learn:

• 5 factors to consider when deciding when to apply for benefits
