Event Details


California law provides significant protections to residents of rental property who are victims of domestic violence or other violent crimes.

The legislature has determined that victims of domestic violence should not lose their housing solely because of abuse or calling for assistance from law enforcement. However, the law also recognizes that in some cases it may be best for the victim to relocate – and to be released from the financial obligations of a lease. These protections were recently extended to victims of violent crime (not just domestic violence) and to residents who need to move because their family member who lives elsewhere was the victim of a violent crime or domestic violence.

This webinar will be taught by Cassandra T. Glanville, Counsel at Fox-Rothschild, LLP. Cassandra is adept at untangling the complex financial issues that accompany high-asset family law proceedings, such as property characterization and valuation, shareholder rights, breach of fiduciary duties, asset and property tracing, goodwill valuation and reimbursement rights.

SBRPA is charging $10 for the program. All proceeds will be contributed to  C.A.L.M., a local domestic violence program.
