This text is a New York State-specific Family Law textbook written for undergraduate legal students and paralegal education students. The only text of its kind available, this unique resource covers both matrimonial law (annulment; separation; divorce; and equitable distribution of marital property), and Family Court proceedings, such as family offenses, child protection, termination of parental rights, and adoption. While the text is designed to focus on the laws of New York State, issues of current nationwide debate, such as same-sex marriage, are presented in their national context, and federal legislation is discussed. The text offers a wealth of pedagogic strategies that bring the law to life. These strategies include thought-provoking discussion topics; "Basics Boxes", which introduce each type of Family Law litigation; Practice Tips; Chapter Review Questions; and Chapter Assignments with varying degrees of difficulty. New York forms are integrated throughout the text for student use. The text also offers expanded coverage of divorce with additional forms and cases and a new section on interviewing skills. Many new websites appear in the text to aid in computer-assisted legal research projects and to help students explore topics beyond the text.

"My overall reaction to this book is very favorable. I think it is an excellent text. It is comprehensive in subject matter. It is also very readable. Throughout it makes some difficult subject matters understandable to the reader. I think the writing style is perfect. I think it is a very good review of complex subject matter. I would continue to request to use this book and prefer this book to other texts of a similar nature."
"I believe it is a great product. My overall reaction to this book is favorable, because there is virtually nothing out on the market that is NYS specific for the paralegal."
