Gitlin on Divorce is the authority on Illinois divorce law, cited consistently and extensively by Illinois courts. The legacy of H. Joseph Gitlin is now carried on by his son Gunnar J.

This conveniently organized 3-volume set focuses on the realities of family law practice in Illinois, delivering seasoned analysis in a uniform, from-the-trenches style. Attorneys can confidently turn to its comprehensive substantive coverage, procedural guidance, court-tested forms and charts, such as those disclosing patterns in spousal maintenance awards by Illinois courts.
