Family Law and Practice connects theory, history and practice in family law. It prepares you to enter the workplace with a firm grasp of family law and procedural components of family law practice. To meet this challenge, the authors address the content in two parts: the first introduces the principles of family law and the second translates theory into practice.
The 5th Edition addresses changing views on marriage, spousal roles, children's status in the family, and even what constitutes a family. It also adds cases, statutes and legal forms from a variety of US states to engage students across the country. This edition includes a new hypothetical child support case guiding students to calculate child support and adjust calculations to their jurisdiction.
