Get the facts from both sides

Geared to both family lawyers and mental health professionals, this interactive program will focus on the intersection of the mental health and legal fields in custody cases. A panel of judges, family law attorneys and mental health professionals will also discuss issues affecting the different roles of the psychologist (acting in the best interests of the children) and the attorney (acting as the advocate for a client’s point of view).

Topics include:

·    Standards for determining custody — best interests and alternatives to the best interests standards
·   
Determining legal and physical custody
·   
Should there be presumptions in custody factors affecting a custody determination
·   
Factors affecting a custody determination — child’s preference, status quo, sexual orientation, working parents, addiction and mental illness, abuse, and relationship of the parents
·   
Parenting plans for different age children
·   
Relocation
·   
Litigation strategies
·   
Alternative methods for resolving custody disputes
·   
Parental alienation
