Teen parent legal
session is planned
Prenatal and teen pregnancy agency providers are invited to a workshop, "Legal Issues Facing Pregnant and Parenting Teens," from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 1 at the Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children, second-floor auditorium.
Workshop presenter Annabel Murray, project coordinator and supervising attorney of Na Keiki Law Center of Volunteer Legal Services Hawaii, has been a child advocate in Hawaii since 1992, representing hundreds of children in Child Protective Services and other Family Court matters.
Since 2002 she has taught the spring semester Family Law Clinic at the University of Hawaii Richardson School of Law.
Murray recently helped create the Young Families in Need program with funding from the Geist Foundation, recruiting volunteer attorneys to adopt a high school class to provide legal education to pregnant and parenting teens and their families.
Issues she will discuss at the workshop include paternity, custody, visitation, alternative custodial arrangements and child support.
The fee is $30 per person, not including lunch.
Early registration is requested due to limited seating. Registration forms can be downloaded from www.hmhb-hawaii.org. For more information, call 951-5805 or e-mail email@example.com.
