  • The CFLR Trial Advocacy program is an intensive, three-day program that focuses on trial skills in child custody matters. This program will help you build strategies and plan your presentation to gain the best outcome for your client. Each day will focus on a specific hypothetical that will anchor the panel presentations. Each panel, consisting of a judge, an attorney, and a mental health professional, will assist you in seeing the case through the prism of three different perspectives. Day 1 will guide you through the presentation of an RFO for an initial child custody order based on domestic violence, substance abuse, and child neglect. Day 2 will focus on trial presentation where the court has ordered a child custody evaluation. It will cover the best strategies regarding the scope and focus of the custody report, what steps to take depending on whether the report is favorable or unfavorable, and the most effective way to present the testimony of an Evidence Code section 733 evaluator who either challenges or buttresses the report. Day 3 will focus on post-judgment modification of the custody order where the issues involve special needs children, relocation, or splitting siblings between two households.During the program, you will explore the best way to present your client’s story to the court, and you will have an opportunity to observe examples of effective presentation and cross examination., Faculty, Family Law From the Experts: Trial Advocacy in Child Custody Cases from Initial RFO to Trial to Post-Judgment RFO, California Family Law Report, Family Law, 2020
