About 101+ Practical Solutions for the Family Lawyer

A collection of practice-proven tips from leading family lawyers, 101+ Practical Solutions for the Family Lawyer is full of straightforward information that you can apply immediately to your own practice. Even better, for the first time this updated edition now includes a CD-ROM with the book's numerous forms, agreements, charts, and checklists ready to be downloaded and customized for your practice.

This information-packed guide is a compendium of information presented at the popular "Hot Tips from the Experts" program offered each year during the ABA's Annual Meeting. The program's presenters are experienced professionals, including lawyers, judges, CPA's, and psychologists, who offer their real-world experience in a concise tip that can help improve your family law practice.

This new third edition features 23 new tips presented since the last edition was published in 2003 through the 2008 Annual Meeting. In addition to the practical advice in these 131 tips, you'll find numerous, time-saving tools that you can use in your practice: sample letters, forms, language and agreements, financial charts and hypotheses, questions to ask, and interview forms and checklists - now also provided on a bonus CD-ROM.

Here are some of the new tips you'll find in this practical compendium:
  • Advice on custody issues, such as using geographical restrictions in the initial custody order, confronting an adverse custody evaluation, the creative use of mental health professionals, and how to prepare your client for an evaluation
  • Keeping up with the critical area of evidence and discovery, tips on preparing your client for deposition and how text messages can be found and introduced into evidence
  • A new section covers support issues, including QMSOs to protect health insurance for minors, using a QDRO to collect support payments, and imputing earning capacity for a defaulted obligor
  • Suggestions for handling retirement plan issues, including some practical tips for QDROs and protecting your client when insolvent or underfunded pension plans are involved
  • Explanations of pertinent valuation and financial issues, including when trust interests constitute property, sample language for dividing stock options and how personal injury awards or pending claims affect divorce actions
  • A "mini-primer" on the validity of premarital agreements with tips to reduce the possibility of litigation
  • Pointers on practice management, including creating the (almost) perfect retainer agreement and marketing yourself and your law practice
The book's tips are divided into fifteen areas, including client relations, fees, office practice, custody, discovery, trial techniques, support, avoiding malpractice, discovery, premarital agreements, tax issues, retirement plans, valuation, settlement, and evidence, plus a final section on issues a lawyer faces after the client's divorce is final.
