Regardless of the legal structures in a country, a successful cooperation between counseling / support services for families and judicial actors is of high importance for separation / divorce processes with as little conflict as possible. In the joint webinar series on November 4, 11 and 18 by AGF and ICCFR, some existing legal systems and solution approaches in different states will be presented and discussed.
“Supporting Families through Separation: Collaboration not Confrontation – International Experiences.”
Conflict is part of family life. In about one third of marriages, the conflicts seem so serious to the partners that they are dissolved by divorce. Children are also affected to a large extent, in Germany there are about 120,000 underage children every year.
Judicial divorce or custody proceedings are important events in separation processes with far-reaching consequences. This is true regardless of the legal structures in a country. In any case, a successful cooperation between counseling / support services for families and judicial actors is of high importance for separation / divorce processes with as little conflict as possible.
Against this background, the joint webinar series of ICCFR and AGF looks at some existing legal systems and solution approaches in different countries. Experts from diverse states as well as with different professions will discuss ways to support families in the separation process against the background of their legal structures.
The webinar series will be conducted online using Zoom and will consist of three sessions, each adapted to different global time zones. All webinar sessions will be recorded so that all three sessions are available to all registered participants. Dates for participants from Germany will take place on the following dates:
– Wednesday, November 04, 2020: 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
– Wednesday, November 18, 2020: 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
The contributions of these two sessions will be simultaneously translated German / English. A third session will be held on November 11, but will be focused on the Asian / American time zone and not be translated. Registered attendees can watch the recording of the session as a follow-up and preparation for November 18. There is no registration charge.
