Presumptions, Legal Fictions, and the Current State of the Law following Obergefell

When:  Jan 12, 2019 from 11:15 AM to 12:15 PM (CT)
Associated with  Section - Family Law

Deadline to Register: January 10, 2019

The Family Law Section business meeting is prior to the CLE at 9:30 a.m. with an informal pre-session of "There's No Such Thing as a Stupid Question" starting at 9:00 a.m. 

All Section members are welcome and encouraged to attend. The meeting agenda and materials will be sent closer to the meeting date.

Program Description:

Every Child Deserves a Family. Families are formed and babies are now created/born in many ways other than heterosexual intercourse. This reality affects both heterosexual and LGBTQ families. How do we respectfully serve, protect and provide for all the children born in our state, regardless of how we feel about their parents’ choices?
During this presentation, topics addressed will include the rights and equality of the children who are born into these various family forms. Instead of legislating for the ‘ideal’ family form, this presentation will get people thinking about legislating and advocating for the families that actually exist in our state.
