This is the definitive “how-to” book on the practice of family law in Virginia. The chapters address every aspect of the representation from the initial interview of the client through the final orders and decrees. The book includes over 200 forms for pleadings, orders, and correspondence covering all aspects of the litigation. Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or are new to family law practice, this book is a critical resource you’ll find yourself reaching for again and again.
