This is a first edition, "Family Legal Companion" that addresses seemingly common topics such as Marriage, Divorce, Child Custody, Child Support, Adoption, Children, Elder Care, Wills & Estate Planning, and Lawyers. This is filled with no-nonsense information that, in my experience, is usually passed on by word of mouth from one generation to another through the family, or on the street, via gossip. Though the book, through the title, is addressed to families, I feel that this information would be relevant to individuals as well as families. I've never seen a book like this before. I honor the authors and publisher for their devotion to collecting and publishing this information. I think that this could be (if it isn't already) developed into a high school or community class that would benefit many people. And I'm always a fan of using this type of informational/ educational product in group settings such as families as a way to bring them closer together.
