Now in its Fourth Edition, with annual supplements, Georgia Domestic Relations Case Finder by Kathy L. Portnoy and Charla E. Strawser is a handy digest of case summaries outlined by issues and holdings within issues. It includes sections devoted to jurisdiction, pleading and procedure, grounds for divorce, property, alimony, modification of alimony, child custody, modification of custody, child support, modification of child support, separate maintenance, annulment, paternity and legitimation, adoption and termination of parental rights, enforcement, attorney’s fees, and appeal and error.
Starting with the oldest cases, summaries are not mere headnotes or key words; each concise summary includes the essential facts and rulings that lead to each included appellate decision, so that practitioners can quickly determine whether further study of a case should be completed and also gain a sense of the development of case law on a particular issue.
Domestic lawyers that encounter more than an occasional need to research a legal issue or a particular kind of case will use this book often, and it will enhance their research and knowledge. The book is published by LexisNexis and can be purchased here.
