Those who regularly practice family law are most likely familiar with the ABA Family Law Section’s “Family Law in Fifty States.”
The webpage provides access to six “50 state survey type” charts. These summaries are an excellent starting point for researching the various aspects of family law.
The topics include: Alimony/Spousal Support Factors, Custody Criteria, Child Support Guidelines, Grounds for Divorce and Residency Requirements, Property Division, and Third Party Visitation.
The charts, which are also published in the Family Law Quarterly, are updated annually.
