“Just because you don’t share the same home, doesn’t mean you aren’t family.”


Regardless of how you feel about your ex or soon-to-be-ex, if you have kids together, you are still connected. And today, the majority of splitting parents settle on some form of joint custody.

  • What will joint custody look like for your family?
  • What does it take to transition from a marriage or domestic partnership to a strictly parenting partnership?
  • How can you create a new partnership that will help your kids flourish without crushing you?
  • Is it possible to co-parent with an ex you can’t be in the same room with?

Whether you are newly split, just thinking about it or in the process of separating, we invite you to come hear from some thoughtful, experienced experts and some families who’ve been through it.

Join us for an informal panel evening that tackles some big principles of successful co-parenting as well as the day to day practical realities. This event is open to both men and women – bring your co-parent for maximum impact (and save $5)!
