It provides a unique review and analysis of divorce and related family-law issues throughout the United States, and describes current approaches to problem areas such as child custody, child and spousal support, marital agreements, and unmarried domestic partners. The book's analytic approach will help practitioners develop arguments to support their case when local state law is unsettled or appears unfair to the client. It summarizes the ways different states have handled important issues and makes recommendations for model provisions of law that legislatures might want to adopt in their own states. It also offers a legal framework that can accommodate the different choices people make and the expectations they bring to their family relationships.
