The book provides practical and insightful guidance on all aspects of handling a family law case for new and seasoned family law practitioners and  general practice attorneys who handle family law matters in Pennsylvania.

The guide also offers commentary, organizational suggestions, case summaries, and many forms. Each chapter identifies the key provisions of the relevant Pennsylvania statutes and the rules discussed in the chapter, so the attorney is well prepared for settlement or litigation.

The softbound book, which is updated annually, also is available in eBook form.
