"The trouble is that the range of legal issues that influence family life is broad and growing. To stay abreast of all that needs knowing, one would need to consult a host of attorneys just to find another host of attorneys who knewwhat they were talking about. A comprehensive forensics resource is needed, and this book fills the bill nicely. It belongs on the bookshelf of every MFT who is not also a practicing family law attorney with 50 years of experience!"(Gregory Brock, Ph.D. University of Kentucky -In the 10/01 Journal of Marital and Family Therapy)
