Thursday thru Saturday, September 19-21, 2013

Chicago Hilton/Magnificent Mile Suites

This is a conference put on by the Association of Divorce Financial Planners, an organization of professionals trained to help with the financial aspects of divorce. They are very effective in helping you understand the financial and tax implications of how to divide assets in a divorce. Even if you are not a member of this group, you may find it informative to attend some of all of these programs. Some of the programs being presented  involve QDRO's/Pensions Basics and Update; Health Insurance; Personality and Behavior Disorders; and Family Law Software.

IF you want to become a financial planner for divorce, the three-day agenda offers comprehensive divorce financial planning education and the opportunity to network with leading divorce financial planning professionals. Continuing education (CE) credits are available for financial planners, accountants and CDFAs. Both ADFP members and non-members are welcome. Discounted rates are available for early registration through July 31 and for ADFP members. For a complete agenda and online registration, visit the ADFP website or call 888-838-7773.

Participants in the pre-conference ADFP University are also invited to register for the 11th Annual ADFP Conference September 19-21. The conference will feature presentations by thought leaders in divorce financial planning. Participants can expect to learn about emerging trends, best practices and tips on marketing to divorce professionals and clients. Among the highlights of this year’s conference are presentations on uncovering fraud in divorce, same sex issues, information on the Taxpayer Relief Act and expert witness enactment. Plus a session on how personality disorders affect the divorce process. Speakers include not only divorce financial planners, but lawyers  and insurance and estate professionals as well.

Divorce Boot Camp

UBS Tower & Conference Center, One N. Wacker Dr., 2d floor, Chicago

The IICLE program is really for lawyers who want to get the basics of this area of law or who want to get some continuing education credits. I don't know if they would allow a non-lawyer to attend, but ask, if interested. Sessions include: Motion pleadings, discovery, cost of divorce, child custody & visitation, post-divorce representation, and ethics. Topics include motion practice, discovery, the cost of divorce, child support, maintenance & other financial aspects, child custody & visitation, post-divorce representation and ethics.
