This conference will bring together parents, advocates, experts and professionals who are interested in promoting a meaningful and continuing relationship between divorced, separated or never married parents and their children. With a certain emphasis on the integrity of the father-child relationship, conference participants will hear presentations by nationally recognized speakers who will identify the problems, solutions and best practices for parents facing the breakup of a marriage or dating relationship. Through presentations, question and answer sessions, networking, and conferencing, participants will share their collective knowledge to understand the current playing field and meaningfully contribute to the national dialog of family law reform. The conference will be a unique, informative and exciting gathering for all participants.
