Turning the Kaleidoscope of Family Conflict into a Prism of Harmony

AFCC Conference 2017 in Boston, USA, in Collaboration with ICCFR

May 31June 3, 2017
Sheraton Boston Hotel
Boston, Massachusetts

About the conference:

Family law-related conflict arises at many levels, including debates over legislative and policy  initiatives, disputed research findings, professional practice disagreements and, most importantly, conflict between family members related to parenting time, child support and parenting during and after separation and divorce. Although prisms of harmony will not always prevail, it is incumbent upon us to search for collaborative and effective means of resolving these conflicts. Join AFCC in Boston as we explore opportunities to resolve conflict both our clients’ and our own!
