Focused squarely on the California Family Code, California Family Law for Paralegals integrates statutory law and judicial interpretation into a cohesive general discussion of all aspects of the state’s family law. Its practical, straightforward approach is designed to teach the basics to paralegal students, and powerful pedagogy makes it stand apart from most books on California Law. Chapter Overviews and Summaries, exercises, Key Terms, and a glossary combine with examples of all the key Judicial Council forms used in the practice of family law in California. Comprehensive coverage explores all the key topics and developments in this constantly evolving area of the law.

Thoroughly updated, the revised Sixth Edition reflects important changes in the law, with new cases and statutes, including status of California State Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage.
