She’ll address the two types of Special Needs Trusts and key issues in using them in divorce. She’ll answer many questions about who the trustee should be and which parent should pay child support: another friend or family member, or an independent paid trustee and the various options. Lastly, where the assets should go if the child does not spend them all and which parent is responsible for compliance with benefits-program rules and limitations.

Beyond the Nuts & Bolts: Power Tools for PC/DM’s Workshop

Date: January 20th, 2023
Where: Boulder County Courthouse - Jury Room
When: 8:30-1:00 PM

We are excited to announce our PC/DM Workshop facilitated by Bonnie Saltzman and Kate McNamara.

This workshop is a deep dive into the PC/DM process and is intended for current PC/DM practitioners and attorneys working on cases where a PC/DM is appointed or needed. Broadly, we’ll be covering the appointment process, fee issues, parenting issues/decisions, working with other professionals and third parties, and working with the court. This is not a training for professionals looking to start a PC/DM practice.

We’ll be joined for a working lunch by current members of the Domestic Relations bench for the 20th Judicial District. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to hear directly from judicial officers on working with PC/DMs.

The workshop will start at 8:30 a.m. and finish at 1 p.m. for a total of 4CLEs.

The regular price for the workshop is $110 for members and $140 for non-members. We’re offering early-bird pricing through to January 3, 2023 of just $80 for members and $110 for non-members. This price does not include lunch – you can bring your own or order from our lunch selection closer to the event date.

Following the workshop there will be an optional in-person presentation from Our Family Wizard – one of the popular third party communication platforms in use by many high conflict parents.

Take advantage of the early-bird pricing by registering below and using the discount code.
