Family Law for Non-Lawyers uses current events, sometimes with tabloid-style fact patterns or celebrity participants, to illustrate the complexities of and rapid changes in the field of family law. The book also presents recent United States Supreme Court family law cases to allow the reader to play Justice and try to determine how the cases will be decided.

The book surveys family law, familiarizing readers with the similarities and differences in the law throughout the country. Short summaries of the law and related cases bring legal principles to life in an approachable and entertaining way. Contentious issues such as same-sex marriage, abortion and birth control, and assisted reproduction technologies share the stage with courtship and divorce, custody and child support, and parental rights.

The third edition incorporates critical changes to the field and includes a new chapter on the impact of COVID-19 on family law. Family Law for Non-Lawyers raises issues and covers topics that will challenge both the reader familiar with family law and anyone new to the subject. The book is ideal for courses in family studies, couples and family therapy, paralegal studies, and family law classes.
