    • The FITS acronym helps students to understand the roles that funds, intentions, and titles play in characterizing property as either separate or community
  • the proven-effective Examples & Explanations pedagogy combines straightforward introductions with well-written examples and explanations that apply concepts, reinforce learning, and test understanding of material covered
  • meticulous treatment of joint titles and reimbursement, featuring examples thoroughly illustrating all possible scenarios, including retroactivity

  • premarital agreements and recent amendments to the Premarital Agreement Act

Updated throughout and with many new examples, the Second Edition features:

  • major developments regarding retroactivity of the Family Code—affecting premarital agreements, fiduciary duty, and domestic partnerships
  • several new cases clarifying premarital agreements and fiduciary duty
  • new case decision regarding celebrity goodwill
