For all courses in Family Law in a wide variety of legal studies degree and certificate programs.

This text combines the theoretical and practical aspects of family law, preparing students to enter the workplace thoroughly knowledgeable about both family law and the procedural law requirements of family law practice. Coverage includes: same-sex marriage, domestic partnerships, covenant marriage, premarital agreements, parenting plans, reproductive technologies and custody battles, alternative dispute resolution and adoption. The Third Edition has been thoroughly updated, and is revised to support a broader student population. It contains more practical coverage; new discussions of legal procedures and extrajudicial methods promoting citizen and state interests; improved organization; new sections linking theory to practice; and two new chapters: Marriage and Marriage Alternatives, and Divorce, Legal Separation, and Annulment.
