My first attempt at leaping into the unknown was when I switched careers from meeting deadlines for one editor to meeting deadlines for an attorney, a clerk and a client. My organizational and writing skills were the pillars that held me steady during my time at the public defender’s office. I learned about criminal law and the inner workings of the courthouse, and the unknown became familiar.
A couple of leaps forward landed me in Raleigh. And soon, the unknown became familiar. That’s why I am planning to attend the Paralegal Division Family Law CPE on March 23 at the Bar Center. I will admit it. The closest I have been to family court is a courtroom observation during my paralegal days. So, this seminar is pretty exciting for me.
Here are some topics that I am naturally curious about:
Certified family law mediator Rebecca Watts updating us on legislative news and pertinent case law.
Amanda Cannavo revealing the ins and outs of the N.C. Child Support Guidelines.
Judge Christy T. Mann outlining procedures that help us better assist the attorney and the presiding judge.
I want to learn how to create an equitable distribution spreadsheet, plus gather information on ethics and retirement benefits.
Don’t let me tell you what sounds good. Take a leap and attend on March 23.
