Description

DePaul’s Schiller DuCanto & Fleck Family Law Center will present a full day symposium on the 'New American Family'. Through various panel discussions with experts in the field, panelists and attendees will explore the values and culture shifts of the American family, implications of not marrying, the ethical dilemmas in addressing embryos upon separation, the economics of marriage and separation, the 'graying divorce', how to co-parent effectively post decree, and mental health concerns for the new American family.
