The book is amazing and updated with the material it contains. It's a amazing starting point in understanding what Family Law is and how the law is applied to domestic relations. It a wealth of info covering the position of paralegals and attorney's as well. I especially appreciate the a lot of references it provides for outside basic and secondary authorities. I recommend this material for anyone who is either interested in family law or is interested in becoming a professional in the zone of law.
This book is clearly written and gives some unbelievable case studies. In addition, it provides a clear explanation of the progression of Fresh York's Domestic Relations Law as it has evolved to reflect changing social norms as well as evolving biological possibilities for becoming parents. A unbelievable textbook.
I received this book today. Its in such a poor condition that I feel embarassed to take it to classes. I dont wish my teacher to think that Im this kind of neglect person. I really feel upset that you are renting something like this. Want I could post a image here. I may end up recovering the book and gluing all the pages that is falling off so It doesnt look like a dirty person. Its beat up, worn like a angry dog.
Mr. Stephens provides a brilliant conglomeration of case law updates, interviews with judges and private tip in Stephens Squibs. The case law review helps the attorney that practices in other locations to understand more easily the law surrounding family problems in Florida. For most attorneys, no matter their practice area, family comes up at some point in the representation and it is nice to have a tutorial that is so easily accessible to reference just so that we, as attorneys in other fields, can quickly respond some questions and have the knowledge to refer in other areas.
Attorney Stephens has provided to the literary marketplace and fine example of a squib..."a short humorous or satiric writing or speech." This is not only entertaining; it is informative to the reader. I would most definitely consider this purchase. I know that I am glad that I did. Thank you Counselor!
Mr. Stephens has done a truly amazing deed for practicing Florida Family Law attorneys in producing this regular ongoing caselaw modernize for us to use in our everyday practices. Kudos to Mr. Stephens for being at the forefront of the Kindle professional resource element!
My name is Steven Burda and I purchased and read this book from begin to finish, with interest. Amazing book. Very helpful and insightful. The topic of Court Rules, Family Law and Domestic Relations is near and dear to me, as a Dad who loves his children and family more than anything, I can tell you this reading is worth your time. Knowledge is power, and you will learn plenty from this strong reading. I highly recommend this reading. I am from Pennsylvania myself but sister state Florida has very related problems as does PA.
Perfect resource for the non-attorney litigation help specialist. A fast reference for financial, accountants, CPAs and mental health specialists that help divorce attorneys with litigation and settlement services. Highly recommended.
Eddie Stephens provides an invaluable resource for those wanting to hold abreast of the ever-evolving zone of Florida Family Law. As both a lawyer and academic, I also highly recommend this book to professors teaching Family Law in Florida. The textbooks can give the basics, but since family law is a monster of state law, giving students a true glimpse (not to mention a amazing preparation for the bar) into how our ever-changing statutes are being interpreted, is a gift.
I'm just beginning to use this book and will modernize this review if my opinion changes, but after reading the first chapter I questioned whether the book actually covered Obergefell v. Hodges, because there are several notes in the first chapter that are written from a perspective that some states still do not let same-sex marriage. Of course, I just figured out that Obergefell is covered in chapter 2, but it appears in the rush to obtain this out they didn't fully edit the book from the prior edition. I think some acknowledgment of the fresh reality is required in chapter one.
The ebook is an simple read. I don’t like how I can’t use that page locator because it makes it difficult to follow along in class. The ebook has a zone number. I found online: based on the 2 sized font, 2 Kindle pages = 1 paperback page. also, Zone number / 20 = page number
At the end of the semesters, I typically purge and resell my law books. But I plan on keeping this one in my sparse law library because I plan on practicing Domestic Relations when I pass the bar exam. This book is a amazing recitation of Constitutional Law, my real love! And it has some sociological statistics that our professor draws from to illustrate the state of America today.
I just received my Family Law grade back today for the Fall 2019 semester – A!The exam was all essay, closed-book. However, completing every question in this book (even though the vast majority are multiple choice questions) really sharpened my eye for problem spotting. The exam almost seemed too easy, because I felt like the answers just popped into my head as I was reading the exam questions. I HIGHLY recommend this book. My goal is to practice family law and later become a family law judge. I did a mixture of this supplement, outlining, and flashcards (something I NEVER do). By far, this supplement was the most helpful.
I use this book for my family law class everyday. My professor is one of the authors. I place four stars because I like the content but not the organization of the topics. I wished they had followed a more intuitive method of organizing each of the subjects.
The edition of the book was incorrect. Item is depicted as 6th Edition, which is why I purchased it, but I received the 5th edition. Looking for a method to obtain a because I had to the 6th Edition to remedy this error!
Full disclosure: the author is a distant cousin of mine. But I wouldn't have bought the book if it weren't relevant to my is is a must-have when dealing with mentally-ill family members. It's clearly laid-out, simple to read, and full of very useful information. It's well-worth the cost -- it will for itself in reduced stress and probably financially, as well.
I'm not much at doing reviews, but if my review helps another person that is lost in the quagmire of divorce, then it is well worth it. Study this book and it will "set you free"! I am truly grateful for this perfect writing. Amazing for attorneys and Judges and those of us who are underdogs and need a friend! God Bless You Judge Goldberg.Dawn (Ken's Mom)
If you are struggling to cope with or support out a family member with mental health issues, this is the book for you. Covers everything from how to apply for Social Security benefits to how to with financial struggles to criminal behavior and more. This should be given out by every mental health professional working with these families. Clearly written and comprehensive.
Perfect resource for family law attorneys! This booked has saved me countless hours of time because it easily spells out which orders you need for which family law topics. It’s a amazing resource for beginner and even intermediate family law attorneys. The chapters also support you learn by stating some of the law you need to know relevant to the subjects of the orders.
This book is an essential resource. It is well written and thoroughly researched. A helpful tutorial for family members who wish to support navigate the system for individuals who have difficulty doing so on their own. I am a clinical Psychologist, I have purchased one copy for myself, and one for my waiting room.
If you live with mental illness, are a family member or caregiver for somebody with mental illness, advocate for people with mental illness, or just think mental health law is a really interesting topic, this is a book you should read.
This book is incredibly well written and should be purchased by anyone getting divorced, and attorneys and judges in California family court because it will hold the proceedings honest and ethical. I truly want I had this book four years ago! I'm finally looking forward to going back to court and getting my divorce settled.
If you're Looking for a Christian devotional this is OK. The everyday devotions are very short. The forward isn't even written by a Christian which I thought was kind of odd. And the actual devotional points are basic. I didn't think it was that great. This might be amazing for like a teenager but not an adult male who is trying to become closer to the Lord.
Amazing book. Sample it for 14 days at the Youversion Bible app. Definitely written by a fellow brother who's been there. Just what I need for my short tempered flesh! Funny how it applies to what I'm currently going thru.
Just a few days into this book and already feel like I have valuable insight into the lives of our law enforcement professionals. While this is not my chosen career field, I still appreciate what I am gaining from this everyday devotion. Simple, life applicable lessons in brief context. Love adding this to my day. I have a fresh empathy for the challenges these men and women face.
With so a lot of self-help and motivational books on the market, it's often overwhelming and saturated with opinions on how best to experience life. What's various about Behind the Badge is its Biblically sound and targeted to law enforcement. Adam's experience on the force lends significant credibility and has enabled him to empower LEOs through inspiration that is infused with spirituality. Thankful for this perfect book!
As a Chaplain for our sheriff’s office, I am always on the look out for devotionals that I can share with my Blue Line family. I really like the method the author place this book together. If you or someone you love is an officer it is well worth the price. This is also a amazing bonus for fresh officers within your department.
Well it arrived with a broken seal and pages not together :/ disappointed in the quality.
This devotional addresses every struggle the police officer goes through and also has a section which discusses how this affects the family of law enforcement. Officers live in a negative, dark globe which hardens the heart and affects every aspect of the officers life. This devotional is a breath of new air and allows the officer to with the negative situations in a positive way. Highly recommend this devotional. We have purchased this devotional for other law enforcement officers and it was well received with gratitude.
Well written and engaging devotional from someone who knows the ups and downs of the career field. It sits on the kitchen table and we read it as a family as I'm coming home from a shift in the morning and my wife and daughter are starting their day. Thank you for such a amazing spiritual resource.
