Family Law News


Posted on: Sep 20, 2016

Hello Fellow IndyBar Family Law Section Members!
 
I come bearing news of an awesome CLE/CME at an even more awesome price. We all need education credits and many of us want to learn about issues which arise in family law cases and that cannot be properly addressed by code books and judgements. Enter AFCC Indiana.
 
Some of the most intriguing and helpful training I’ve received has been from the AFCC—Association of Family and Conciliation Courts. In different parts of the country, AFCC is the premier organization for professionals who value a multidisciplinary approach to resolving family conflict. In Indiana, our chapter of AFCC is still young and has struggled somewhat to grow and flourish. However, it has mirrored its parent organization in at least one respect—it offers high quality, intriguing, valuable continuing education at a low price point.
 
This year’s annual conference, to be held on October 7, 2016 at the IndyBar Education Center, features Justice David, Judge Hughes, Dr. Byrd, Dr. Gonso, Dr. Tiffany Simpson (Lake County) and Chris Countryman speaking on a wide variety of topics related to mental health issues and their impact on our cases (substance abuse and parenting; alienation and estrangement; child development’s impact on family law cases; mental health evidentiary issues; and a mental health 101 if you’re new to the practice or need a refresher). We are prequalified for 6 hours of CLE and 6 hours of ever-elusive CME credit. We’ll feed you twice (breakfast and lunch), give you an opportunity to network, market and brainstorm with lawyers, judges and mental health professionals from all over the state. Current registration includes family law professionals and judges from Evansville, Columbus, Bloomington, Fort Wayne, Noblesville, Indianapolis, Merrillville and Valpo.
 
We’ve also arranged for Magistrate Nanette Raduenz (Lake County) and Magistrate Victoria Ransberger to lead a lunch time discussion of the new PC Guidelines.
 
Please visit www.indianaafcc.org for details and to register. The cost is just $75 for members or $100 for non-members. We are able to keep the price low due to a sponsorship from Our Family Wizard!
 
Thank you and see you on October 7!
