3.0 out of 5 stars Factually correct but not useful for the real world January 1, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have been a family law paralegal for over 20 years and purchased this book through Amazon for use in my Family Law class towards my paralegal certification. The information contained in it is factually correct as far as how family law (usually) works in California, and some of the precedent setting cases used. But do not purchase this book thinking you will be able to file a case by using it, or that you will use it in your profession for reference, or as a manual. I have found it useless for these things. Because family law is so complex, the information felt very convoluted, even to someone with my experience. Our instructor had to spend a lot of time putting it all together for everyone so they could understand it. My classmates who were not paralegals told me they found it more difficult to follow than our criminal law books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rating the Seller March 4, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book in both content and method of production. A true high quality paperback, has the reading style and production of a high quality textbook. I would try to get it used (as I did) If I paid more than $35 I may not be so motivated....

This book was used for a family law class. Easy to understand and is organized well. It really helped me to understand family law and how child support is calculated. Great textbook.
