Early Intervention Conference

Early Intervention Conference - After a Complaint for Divorce is filed in Oakland County, the parties and their counsel are required to appear at an Early Intervention Conference (EIC). EICs are held at the Friend of the Court (FOC) office before the assigned FOC referee. The referee conducts a review of the case status, provides the parties information about the divorce process and FOC services, and schedules a coparenting class known as SMILE.
