AFCC 15th Symposium on Child Custody

From a Full House to Parenting Apart

Las Vegas

Planet Hollywood
Resort and Casino

November 10-12, 2022

When a full house becomes parenting apart, changes in the family can become all consuming. While most families can successfully navigate these changes, some struggle due to a variety of issues, including substance misuse, parental alienating behaviors, intimate partner violence, and other challenges. How can family justice professionals help when children are dealt a bad hand? Is a successful future in the cards for high-conflict families? Join AFCC in Las Vegas as we examine the challenges of parenting apart.
