The mission of ISBA Family Law Section
- to encourage and support a high level of professional and ethical commitment and expertise among those who practice family law in all its substantive branches;
- to remain sensitive to the changing needs and mores of families and individual family members in our society; and
- to respond, through reasoned efforts directed toward the appropriate branch of government, and bar and/or the public;
- to accomplish understanding of the law as it exists and is applied, or change of that law, where it is needed.
Family Law Toolkit
The new Family Law Toolkit is a quick reference guide that includes relevant statutes, caselaw, and supreme court rules. In clear, easy-to-follow terms, it walks you through the calculation of support and maintenance, education expenses, the equitable division of property, parentage issues, attorney fees, and so much more. It even includes a handy three-year calendar to reference. You’ll want a copy on your bookshelf, as well as in your briefcase.
