Representing the Teenage Parent
Part 1: Legal Hotspots

Wednesday, July 15, 2020 | 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM (EDT)

Teen parents hold a contradictory place in the law.  They are bestowed with adult responsibilities, but their age disqualifies some from being treated as adults. Explore this dynamic and others with our expert faculty during this two part series as we unravel the different legal issues and practice considerations surrounding the teenage parent. Hear how child welfare, family law, and social and education services support can intersect and impact your dealings with the teenage client and external parties.  Equip yourself with the strategies and insight necessary for effectively managing the unique challenges of the teenage parent interacting with the law with this valuable series.

During Part 1: Legal Hotspots, hear from our exceptional panel on:

  • Balancing parental rights vs. the child’s best interests in family law: custody, access, paternity, child support
  • The teenage parent and access to education
  • The teenage parent and the Child, Youth and Family Services Act
  • Involvement of the Children’s Aid Society: when, how and why
