Overview


Nicole M. Pearl and Julie Miraglia Kwon will present “Modern Family: Defining Spouses and Descendants in the 21st Century” at the BASF MCLE program.

Topics will include:

  • Who should qualify as a spouse?
  • Should the definitions include registered domestic partners or cohabiting couples?
  • What happens when a marriage terminates?
  • Who should qualify as a child?
  • Presumptions of parenthood based on marital status, genetics or treating the child as your own
  • How does adoption or assisted reproduction alter the presumptions concerning parenthood?
  • Should children born or conceived after a parent’s death still be considered the child of that parent?
  • How can we fix existing documents that did not contemplate these broader family relationships?
