Overview

Written by an experienced family law practitioner and paralegal educator, FAMILY LAW FOR PARALEGALS is the most comprehensive and current text available for paralegal family law courses. Through clear explanations and well-chosen examples, Ehrlich gives your students both the background they need in the law and the skills they need for the future. Each chapter includes historical overviews that give students a meaningful understanding of family law, as well as in-depth explanations of the law as it is today. The book begins with an overview of marriage and divorce, including non-marital families, child custody, child support, and spousal support. Then the text continues with separate chapters on child abuse and neglect, adoption, abortion, and reproductive technology. With a distinctively fresh approach, the book offers: helpful real-life examples, many taken from actual cases; facsimiles of typical forms students will encounter in practice; coverage of cutting-edge issues, such as same-sex marriage, reproductive technology, and co-parent adoption; and a separate chapter on domestic violence. Each chapter includes a summary, a list of key terms, and review questions, as well as topics for discussion that encourage students to talk about controversial issues in an open, engaged manner, and assignments that develop critical thinking and writing skills. Assignments also direct students to the laws of their own state, so they can learn to apply their legal knowledge under specific state requirements. With Instructor's Manual.
