The practice of family law is complicated at best and antithetical to a “one size fits all” approach. When a family determines to move forward separately—dividing assets, finances, and determining child custody—there is always a high level of stress and oftentimes hostility, making successful case resolutions challenging to reach and mediation difficult to conduct. This is where experience and knowledge in the field is imperative. With a desire to assist those engaged in the practice of family law, both practitioners and judges, Judge Hank Goldberg has written a comprehensive and informative practical resource to address all major components of these cases, and guide professionals to successful outcomes. After six years of research and widespread utilization of these materials within the Los Angeles County family law courts, this book presents findings and conclusions that concisely identify the legal elements of California family law doctrines. Step by step analysis is provided for the resolution of these legal issues. The materials also contain model orders covering all major issues arising in courts on a daily basis and the legal authority for those orders. Of course, there are no jury instructions in family law; and this is probably why no systematic effort has been made to state California family law doctrines in a format similar to jury instructions, concisely yet with precision. Until now. This book can also be used to create discovery plans, plan direct and cross-examination, and to issue or stipulate to orders and judgments. It contains scripts for utilization by judges and attorneys in court and offers practice pointers and tips for litigation and settlement. For any attorney or judge engaged in family law within the Stat e of California, this unique insiders’ guide is an outstanding reference tool.
