Product details

Maine Family Law is a practical "how to" resource providing you with all the laws, procedural guidance, and substantive analysis you need to build a successful family law practice. It analyzes clearly and exhaustively the substantive principles of Maine matrimonial law, including issues of jurisdiction, mediation, parental rights and responsibilities, property distribution, spousal support, and settlement agreements. It also features time-saving forms, sample documents, and other practice aids.

Expert author Judge Jon D. Levy has revised his definitive publication to include these significant changes:

• Comprehensive analysis of all recent statutory changes to Title 19-A, including Maine's new spousal support statute, as well as revisions to Maine's equitable distribution statute
• Coverage of the Maine Law Court's family law decisions issued since the 2000 edition
• Discussion of the developing concept of "de facto" parenthood and the standards for determining a party's income for purposes of child support and spousal support.
