Additional Book Details

Family Law addresses contemporary family law issues and analyzes the public and private dichotomy in contemporary family law relationships. Current family law topics addressed in this book include:

Marriage and marriage alternatives
Support and property rights
Conception and reproduction issues
Domestic violence and intrafamily torts
Care and supervision of children
Adoption and termination of parental rights
Legitimacy and paternity
Divorce or dissolution of marriage
Economic consequences of divorce, including spousal and child support, equitable distribution of marital and community property and a discussion of the American Law Institute's proposed principles of the law of family dissolution
Child custody and visitation, including a discussion of the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act and the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act
Premarital and postmarital agreements
Alternative dispute resolution
Ethical issues for the family lawyer

While addressing many cutting-edge family law issues, this family law casebook still maintains a realistic balance between theory and practice. The format is manageable, condensed, and user-friendly. Each topic includes a general introduction, a current or landmark illustrative judicial decision, relevant notes and questions analyzing, extending, or questioning each topic, and problems allowing students to analyze particular family law issues and disputes as practitioners, legislators, or jurists would.
