Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The trouble is that the range of legal issues that influence family life is broad and growing. To stay abreast of all that needs knowing, one would need to consult a host of attorneys just to find another host of attorneys who knewwhat they were talking about. A comprehensive forensics resource is needed, and this book fills the bill nicely. It belongs on the bookshelf of every MFT who is not also a practicing family law attorney with 50 years of experience!"(Gregory Brock, Ph.D. University of Kentucky -In the 10/01 Journal of Marital and Family Therapy)
