Why Family Court Attorneys should do Appeals Featured Event
This CLE is intended for attorneys with some family law experience but is also suitable for beginning. It will focus on relatively recent changes to South Carolina case law that clarified a more expansive standard of review for substantive issues on appeals from family court and recent cases demonstrating less deference to family court credibility findings. It will also explain the procedure for family court appeals, note which deadlines are jurisdictional, and which deadlines have greater flexibility.
An actual current member of the Court of Appeals will provide her thoughts on family court appeals. Finally, the CLE will conclude with a panel discussion/Q&A.
