A condensed version of California Family Law Practice™ — perfect for use in court . . .
Court Companion™ is a highly condensed version of California Family Law Practice™ (CFLP™) for use as an in-court reference tool. In order to reduce this work to a manageable and convenient size, language and citation style have been abbreviated. In addition, chapters from CFLP™ that would be infrequently consulted in court (Chapters H (Interstate Custody) and O (Bankruptcy)) have been omitted. The sections in Court Companion™ approximately parallel CFLP™ sections.
Court Companion™ highlights current California and federal family law in light of major developments and national trends. Its outline form is designed to offer a quick overview of important topics needed in court, with references to the CFLP™ sections where more detailed examinations of any given topic can be found. This edition of Court Companion™ summarizes almost 30 years of detailed practical analysis of every published California family law decision, and includes references to pertinent civil procedure cases, as well as federal bankruptcy, tax, and ERISA rulings. Tables of cases, statutes and topics are also included.
