New PA Family Law Form Book

The Legal Intelligencer has a new book out: Library of Pennsylvania Family Law Forms by Joseph S. Britton, partner of Begley, Carlin & Mandio. Topics include divorce, custody, support, alimony, paternity, counsel fees, discovery, protection from abuse, and more. Each topic includes statutory authority and key sample forms. The forms are available both in the book and on the accompanying CD-ROM. The CD-ROM also has select county specific family forms not available in the book.

This title also contains some hard-to-find sample forms, such as Petition for Special Relief for divorce, custody, and support issues. Furthermore, the forms for custody, support, and paternity use language easily amended to reflect the parents' marital status at the time of the child(ren)'s birth.

Check out our Pennsylvania Family Law Resource Guide for this and more resources available at Jenkins.
