    Product Description

    All of the resources you need daily in your family law practice in one practical publication—state and federal statutes, regulations, court rules, and procedures. Case annotations on important points of law immediately follow statutory text, so that you can instantly see how the courts have interpreted a particular statute. Concise and practical summaries of family law cases decided by the Massachusetts Appeals Court and Supreme Judicial Court in the past year are organized chronologically in the case digest. An archive of previously published case digests dating back to 1979 is also included as an added feature.
