Basics of Divorce Practice

Electronic Publication (PDF version)

Divorce practice ranks among the most demanding, complex and challenging areas of legal work. In order to be effective and avoid costly mistakes, counsel must be prepared to address a wide array of issues — from asset valuation and division, to child custody matters, to taxation — often in a high-pressure, deadline-driven arena.


This publications outlines how to determine the facts of your client’s case, select appropriate avenues of relief and parry your opponent’s strategies with relevant statutes, rules and leading cases that you can use to achieve positive results for your client.
