Shaded box "sidebars" insert context, background, and real-life examples throughout the text. Improved organization consolidates the material into blocks that follow an orderly and logical progression. An introductory chapter on trusts appears before nonprobate transfers, providing much-needed context for revocable trusts as will substitutes. Reorganization enhances the revised material on nonprobate transfers and trust administration, creditor's rights, trust modification, probate transfers, spousal and children's shares, and trusts. The Ninth Edition features the latest developments in statutes, law reform projects, scholarly writing, and cases, such as those on revocable trusts and harmless error in will execution. Relevant uniform law activity is discussed, including the new Uniform Premarital and Marital Agreements Act, and attention is paid to the finalization of the new Restatements on Property and Trusts. Updates to the social science work on inheritance and intestacy are presented. Attention is paid to developments affecting inheritance among same-sex partners.

Modern Family Law reflects the social diversity of the modern family as it examines the legal impacts of the women’s movement, the children’s rights movement, the fathers’ rights movement, domestic violence, changing sexual mores, nontraditional family forms, and developments in reproductive technology. Integrating valuable interdisciplinary perspectives, the text includes excerpts, notes, and questions emanating from history, psychology, sociology, social work, medicine, and philosophy. A variety of problem exercises, most derived from actual cases and current events, covers cross-cutting themes as well as the basics of family law. Human-interest stories that complement the cases heighten student awareness of the real impact of the law on people’s lives. Modern Family Law easily adapts to shorter or longer courses. The Sixth Edition offers contemporary perspectives on family law theory and covers new developments on such topics as alienation of affections, adoption, assisted reproduction, attorneys’ sexual ethics, bigamy, child abuse, child custody and support, divorce, domestic violence, grandparents’ visitation rights, names in the family, parentage, premarital agreements, and reproductive rights. The text features major coverage of developments on same-sex marriage, DOMA, and other issues of equality for gay and lesbian families. The decline of marriage and the rise of new conceptualizations of family are explored along with the return of the “culture wars,” including political disputes about contraception.
