"UNDERSTANDING THE UNIFIED FAMILY COURT SYSTEM WHEN ADVOCATING FOR SPECIAL NEEDS DEPENDENT CHILDREN"

Speakers:  Debra Salisbury and C. Michael Kelly

The Unified Family Court System can be confusing and complex when representing minors with special needs who are involved in dependency court. Many believe that when the dependency case closes to one parent, that parent has custody and an enforceable court order, but that simply is not accurate under the current law. Understanding the One Family, One Judge concept is essential in advocating for every child, but particularly the special needs child.
