When Divorce and Bankruptcy Collide

Please join the ACBA Bankruptcy and Family Law Sections for a session on considerations for both family law and bankruptcy practitioners when these practice areas intersect in a case. This program will include timing the filing of a bankruptcy or divorce case to maximize the benefits for your clients, things that can be done (and avoided) to minimize complications in the other case, and other issues.

Please see the ACBA events calendar for more events.
