    Collapse Representing a Disabled Parent in Family Court: Law and Strategies

    Disabled parents are the only distinct community of parents who must struggle to retain custody of their children solely due to their distinction of being disabled. In all too many cases, the mere existence of a disability is used against the parent without regard to how that individual is actually capable of parenting safely and successfully. Disabled parents have their children removed in welfare cases at a higher rate than non-disabled parents and generally have a more difficult time getting the children returned to them. This program will examine the laws in place which can be used to protect disabled parents and the strategies to address the biases which are present in the courtroom. Our panel includes an expert on disability rights, a former Family Court practitioner with 18 years experience, and a parent whose disability was used against him in child welfare proceedings.

    Richard James shares his experience and knowledge of fiduciary income taxation from the perspective of someone who has not only prepared and reviewed thousands of 1041s, but also from the perspective of a practitioner who has drafted trusts and has counseled individual clients on matters relating to their status as beneficiaries of trusts.

    While Richard assumes that attendees have some basic familiarity with fiduciary income tax principles (simple vs. complex trust, DNI, etc), he briefly reviews the basic mechanics of fiduciary income taxation. He offers some practice tips for drafting documents to minimize or eliminate possible future fiduciary income tax problems. He discusses a variety of basic issues, such as: how tax situs for a trust is determined and how to "choose" or "change" tax situs; and how to cause (or avoid) grantor trust status. He also talks about some newer or more exotic/technical issues, such as: how to distribute capital gains to beneficiaries; and offer some insights into how a corporate fiduciary deals with fiduciary income taxes.
