Questions & Answers: Family Law contains over 220 questions plus a practice final exam. These questions reflect the significant changes that have occurred since the last edition, such as the recognition of same-sex marriage nationwide, and some of the state practices that continue to diverge, including the role, if any, played by fault in divorce; which property is subject to distribution upon divorce; the protections, if any, that are afforded to individuals who have been in a cohabiting relationship; the conditions, if any, under which third parties are permitted to seek custody or visitation; and the kinds of prenuptial or postnuptial agreements that will be enforceable.
For each multiple-choice question, Professor Strasser provides a detailed answer that indicates which of the four options is the best answer and explains thoroughly why that option is better than the other three options. Each short-answer question is designed to be answered in fifteen minutes or less. For these questions, Professor Strasser provides a thoughtful, comprehensive yet brief model answer.
