Family Law Overview

Family Law

To help parents better understand their rights and responsibilities under the law, CRC is developing family law digests.  These digest review and summarize family laws appropriate to each state, coving such topics as separation and divorce, child access and custody, financial requirements (child support/spousal maintenance), and the division of property.

Please remember, these are only interpretative reviews by the Children’s Rights Counsel and are not intended to provide legal advice specific to your circumstance. For more in-depth information, it is recommended you visit to review the code particular to your state, and/or speak with your attorney for more clarification.

Family law digests for three states are available now:
