Issues in Divorce with Families with Disabled Persons

5:30 - 6:00 PM - Meet and talk with other professionals 

 Share ideas, make new contacts, enjoy refreshments

6:00 - 7:30 PM - Lecture and Discussion

Effective counseling for divorcing families that include persons with disabilities requires addressing the complex issues faced by these families.  What do you do when a spouse has a significant mental health problem or chronic illness?  What needs to be addressed where the parties have a child with special needs?  What role do government benefits play in crafting an appropriate settlement?  Come and learn to identify potential issues when a divorcing family also faces the challenges of disability.
