MCLE on the Administrative Process for Child Support Enforcement

Chicago Council of Lawyers and Chicago Appleseed will be putting on a free CLE panel discussion about the administrative process for child support enforcement. Latham & Watkins have generously offered to host the event, February 27th from 2:30 to 5:30, while Badesch Abramovitch are generously sponsoring the reception (at Latham & Watkins) after the panel.

Nicole McKinnon of Badesch Abramovitch will be the moderator; the panel includes Judge Pamela Loza, Pam Lowry of DHS, and a representative from the State’s Attorneys office. The panel will provide a working understanding of (1) why a case would proceed administratively rather than judicially; (2) how the administrative process works to initiate an order; (3) what administrative enforcement remedies exist; (4) the intersection of administrative and judicial orders and jurisdictional issues.

The CLE is free, but you must rsvp to attend.
