About the Program
Cultural and societal changes are bringing many new challenges to the children of divorced parents, their friends and relatives, as well as to attorneys and guardians.  These challenges often present complex facts and nuanced psychological and legal issues. 

Join Course Planner Greg Forman and a faculty of experienced domestic relations practitioners, as well as Dr. Cheryl Fortner-Wood, Professor of Psychology & McNair Director at Winthrop University, for a unique and comprehensive analysis of third party visitation and custody issues.

The emphasis for this program will be to provide practical guidance on issues specific to the various stakeholders in these cases so that attorneys can offer viable solutions to their clients, as well as the children in their care.

If you practice in the Family Courts of South Carolina, this is a program that will equip you with new strategies and tools in this challenging area of domestic practice.
