Within the system there are often many other players that have way more interaction with kids, parents, and families than the court and even the party’s attorneys.  They have the inside scoop based on their observations, investigations, perceptions, and interactions with YOUR clients and their kids.  In these workshops we will uncover three case studies involving complex custody issues including a resist/refuse case, a case where there are concerns about substance abuse, and a case where there has been allegations of domestic violence.  Your presenters are minor’s counsel, a leader in child monitoring services, and parenting plan coordinator/co-parenting specialist.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to describe and understand the roles and functions of the various providers who assist in family law cases including minor’s counsel, court ordered monitor, co-parenting counselor, and parenting plan coordinator.
  • Participants will be able to identify what orders would be helpful when utilizing minor’s counsel, visitation monitors, and parenting therapists/coaches.
  • Participants will gain tips and intervention strategies for assisting clients in working with and interacting with the collateral professionals in the family law system.
  • Participants will be able to create parenting plans that take into consideration and address the needs and interest of children involved in high conflict or complex familial situations.
