Managing the Emotional Side of Divorce: Helping Your Clients Learn the Rules for Disengaging in High Conflict Divorces

It is an attorney’s job to manage all aspects of divorce, including the emotional side. Since most divorces involve people who are angry at each other, attorneys need to find a way to help their clients channel their emotions, and not stoke conflict. Good family lawyers help guide their clients to a place where they can emotionally disengage their former spouse so they can make rational decisions about their children, assets, and future. Disengagement is, of course, easier said than done. This seminar will teach attorneys how to help their clients navigate the rough waters of high conflict divorces to reach an emotional safe harbor where they can make decisions about the rest of their lives.

Topics for discussion include:
• Recognizing the characteristics of high conflict individuals and situations
• Helping clients make decisions based on rationality rather than emotions-discouraging the win/lose mentality
• Encouraging “social media” impulse control in clients
• Tips for de-escalating conflicts between parties
• Helping clients to become forward thinking and letting go of the past
• Encouraging clients to seek out a therapist to help them cope with the transition in their lives
• Managing client expectations and providing clients with realistic assessments about what they expect in custody and financial settlements

Small Business, COVID and Bankruptcy – How Subchapter V is Helping Small Businesses Reorganize in the National Health Crisis

The Small Business Reorganization Act that became effective on Feb. 19, 2020 was intended to address problems encountered by small business debtors in reorganizing under the Bankruptcy Code. It arrived just in time – the pandemic hit, indoor gathering was prohibited and large numbers of small businesses have had to close. Congress recognized this and, through the promulgation of the CARES Act, subchapter V now includes those businesses with an aggregate of $7.5 million in debt. However, that’s not the end of the story. The subchapter also contains provisions that may reduce a creditor’s leverage and require their greater vigilance in a small business case.

Join a panel of knowledgeable practitioners as they bring you up to date on the most important provisions of small business bankruptcy during the pandemic. They will review how the CARE Act interacts with subchapter V, how subchapter V eliminates or changes certain requirements for confirming a plan, what is necessary in order to modify a plan and how to utilize subchapter V to its fullest to protect debtors.

Employment Arbitration Agreements in New Jersey: The Evolution Continues

Presented in cooperation with the NJSBA Labor and Employment Section

New Jersey law related to employment arbitration agreements continues to evolve. This past summer, New Jersey Supreme Court weighed in twice about employment arbitration agreements, opining about whether an employee's continued employment constitutes assent to the arbitration agreement and whether an arbitration agreement fails because it lacks details about the governing law, venue, or selection of the arbitrator. In both cases, the Court reversed the Appellate Division and found in favor of the employers, giving its judicial nod of approval to employers disseminating arbitration agreements electronically, and to employees tacitly agreeing to them by their continued employment. (Amy Skuse v. Pfitzer, Inc., decided August 18, 2020) The Court also found an agreement enforceable that neglected to mention "the who, what, when, and where" of arbitration proceedings. (Marilyn Flanzman v. Jenny Craig, Inc., decided September 11, 2020), finding that parties could bind themselves to the agreement without these details. Our panel will review these new cases and older, related case law. They will also provide advice about how best to construct and execute arbitration agreements and how to counsel plaintiffs who wish to challenge them.

Topics for discussion include:
• A review of important caselaw relating to employment arbitration agreements
• Drafting arbitration agreements-What should be in your agreements; what should be left out
• What rights can and cannot be relinquished in an employment arbitration agreement?
• How should an employer deliver agreements?
• Specifying the what law applies
• NJAA and the FAA

Remarriage and Blended Families

Remarriage and blending families often pose a host of emotional, financial, and legal issues for your clients and their children. Knowing how to navigate those challenges – and even how to address them before they emerge – can make all the difference for the clients you represent.

While many assume that remarriage is simpler because clients have "been through it all before," blending families and unraveling different philosophies toward finances and child-rearing are seldom straightforward. As an attorney, you must prepare your remarrying clients for the challenges that lay ahead with family dynamics and financial issues, so they don't implode and threaten the subsequent marriage's viability.

Learn how to help your clients have the most successful, enjoyable, and (most importantly) issue-free remarriage possible. Help them address the key challenges most remarriages face – the top re-divorce causing issues including:
• Tactfully entering into Premarital Agreements that work
• Alimony and Child Support - Petitions for modification of child support based on changed circumstances/termination of alimony/Modification issues related to COVID
• College, Cars, Camp and Cell Phones: Handling college and other large expenses related to child rearing
• Issues regarding parenting, custody and blending families including those emotionally challenging areas such as:
• Integrating children into newly formed households and families
• Stepparent/Stepchild Dynamics-Dealing with discipline issues
• The importance of therapeutic support for blended families
• Visitation and custody challenges presented by Covid
• The Role and Rights of Stepparents
