Family Support Matters and the Military / 12 June 2013

Presented By: The Battered Women's Justice Project

Date: Wednesday, June 12, 2013
Time: 2:00pm - 3:30pm Central Time
Location: Your Desk

The Battered Women’s Justice Project is pleased to announce a webinar on family support matters for attorneys and legal advocates who deal with military-related survivors of intimate partner violence. Judging from the numbers of questions we’ve received during webinars, it seems that many of you run into problems with this subject. We hope this webinar will answer many of your questions.

Presenter: Ellen C. Schell, Esq., Director, Military Families Program, The Legal Project, Albany, NY.

CDR  Andrew House, JAGC, United States Navy, Deputy Judge Advocate General for Legal Assistance.

Moderator: Glenna Tinney, Military Advocacy Program Coordinator, Battered Women’s Justice Project

Description: How can I assure that my client is receiving adequate support from a service member spouse? How can I get enforcement or wage garnishment for a civilian support order? What counts as military “income”? What do I do if my client cannot, or does not want to, go to a civilian court, but is not receiving support from a service member spouse? How can I make sure that my service member client is not paying support where that is not warranted or is not paying excessive support payments? By discussing these and other questions, this webinar will present you with an overview of family support matters – with or without a civilian court order. It will provide practical information about the military regulations on such matters and present strategies to use to make those regulations work for our clients.

Audience: Civil attorneys, civilian & military legal advocates, judges
