Publication Date: September 24, 2013
Provocative true cases that explore the intersection of our most intimate relationships and the law--and offer a window into how we define a family today.
A woman seeking a divorce has no idea of the family finances--her husband doled out money only after she gave him requisition slips for her intended purchases. A lesbian couple wants to include their sperm donor in their child's life--the sperm donor is the brother of one partner, so he will be the biological father as well as the child's uncle. These are the clients who come knocking on family lawyer Margaret Klaw's door, hoping for resolution.
