The Family Rules Advisory Committee (FRAC) Announces CLE Event on Draft Revisions to the Maine Family Division Rules of Civil Procedure

Date: 9/18/2023

Join the Family Rules Advisory Committee (FRAC) to discuss its proposal to revise and restructure the rules of procedure for Family Division cases (i.e., family matters, probate matters in District Court, protection order matters, and child protection cases). FRAC's proposal includes a standalone set of rules, separate and apart from the Civil Rules of Procedure, that are better customized to meet the unique needs of Family Division cases. The presentation will provide an overview of the most significant changes that FRAC would like to propose to the Supreme Judicial Court (SJC), and invite feedback before finalizing its submission to the SJC.

This event will take place Monday, October 23, 2023, from 9 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. via ZOOM.

This event is FREE and has been approved for 3 CLE credits.
