The Family Justice Advisory Board of Montgomery County has appointed High Swartz Family Law attorney Elizabeth C. Early to its Subcommittee on Support. She joins fellow High Swartz Family attorney Missy Boyd who was appointed Chair of FJAB in May.
High Swartz LLP is pleased to announce that Elizabeth C. Early along with 5 others were appointed to the Subcommittee on Support which serves and reports directly to the Montgomery County Family Justice Advisory Board.
The Family Justice Advisory Board (FJAB) of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, the second board of its kind in Pennsylvania, was established by the Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas in October of 2018. The mission of FJAB is to examine and address Family Court issues from a systemic and policy perspective and recommend ways in which the Court, public agencies and private organizations can efficiently, effectively, and collaboratively improve the process, programs and institutions.* In turn, the Board makes recommendations to the Court, public policy boards and agencies that affect family law in Montgomery County.
Elizabeth C. Early is a family law attorney whose practice areas include divorce, child custody, child support, equitable distribution and protections from abuse. Liz also serves as a court-appointed counsel and guardian for minor children. Liz serves as a court appointed arbitrator in Montgomery County and also accepts private mediations and arbitrations in family law matters. Earlier this year, Liz completed an intensive training program to become a licensed parenting coordinator. Parenting coordination in Pennsylvania is a tool available to parties in contentious custody cases that aims to help those involved resolve minor custody disputes without repeated trips to the court.
“I am excited to be a part of this dynamic and enthusiastic group" says Liz Early. "Under the guidance of the Family Justice Advisory Board, we hope to improve the support process where necessary and increase accessibility to the support court system.”
Per its bylaws, the FJAB is a Board that will bring together all the various stakeholders from within the county that deal with family court and family matters to facilitate an observation of a systematic policy approach to all issues relating to children and families in our county.
I am thrilled with the initiatives that the Family Judiciary Advisory is pursuing" says FJAB Chair, Melissa Boyd. "We’ve brought a lot of talent onto the Support Subcommittee, including the Director of the Montgomery County Domestic Relations Office, Jaime Trupp, Assistant Director of the Domestic Relations Office, Andrew Henderson , Custody Court Conciliator, Molly Kleinfelter, Esquire, and our other superb committee members, High Swartz’s own Elizabeth Early, Esquire, Christina DeMatteo, Esquire and Lindsay Childs, Esquire. Montgomery County residents will surely be positively impacted by the good work of this Subcommittee.”
