Family Law in Perspective - 2nd edition

Family Law in Perspective (ISBN10: 1599412381; ISBN13: 9781599412382)
ISBN13: 978-1599412382
ISBN10: 1599412381

Summary: This readable and authoritative text is designed for law students as a supplement in a basic family law course. The manageably-sized text approaches family law conceptually with coverage extending over a broad area. The Second Edition reviews the multiple state decisions and statutes occurring since the first edition, and integrates them with what has previously been the law. So too, the new edition analyzes the recent enactments of Congress and decisions by the fede
ral judiciary that affect family law. The result of this integration of federal and state approaches is an up-to-date perspective on such issues as private ordering among adults, same sex marriage, relationships mirroring the benefits of marriage, abortion, child support and custody, relocation, domestic violence, and an increasing awareness of the international ramifications of support and custody orders. Procreation and the biological revolution have radically altered the establishment of paternity and maternity and increased scrutiny of the new reproductive technologies available. And regrettably, states and Congress continue to struggle with child abuse and neglect, termination of parental rights, and children residing in foster care or kinship care. Many of these topics are highlighted with a brief footnote so as to offer the reader a portal into further research into that particular subject. The new edition offers an explanation of what has occurred in the past and a rational suggestion as to the trends of the future.
