Noon – 1:30 pm         Presentatio

It is a truism that children depend on the adults around them for their care, support and well-being.  That has not changed.  This care and support is usually provided in the context of family relationships.  However, with social perceptions regarding family structures changing, a fundamental question is being raised:  which relationships will be given legal recognition and protection?  The social consensus is rapidly changing.  As a New York Times article on current developments in family structures recently noted, “researchers who study the structure and evolution of the American family express astonishment at how rapidly the family has changed in recent years.”  The law is attempting to keep pace.  This session will focus on how the law is being affected by parental presumptions, intentions and behavior as well as genetics, declarations and donations.  Specifically, we will address the various ways parentage can be established, the various classes of fathers, and the adult-child relationships that fall within the protection of the law.  Along the way we will look at SB 274 allowing for more than two parents and at case law that is creating multiple fathers as a result of the divergent purposes of dependency and family courts.
