Family Law: A Beginner’s Guide

Subject Headings

As we mentioned in the "Formation and Dissolution of Marriage" section, many of the laws that regulate family law are promulgated by the states. Specifically, to locate treatises specific to your state’s law, please click here to use our catalog and browse subject headings (selected browses are linked below). Click “browse” and use the drop-down to select “SUBJECTS beginning with” or “SUBJECTS containing,” and then input a subject heading. Finally, select the link you are interested in from the results list and browse the materials classified under that subject heading.

If you want to find the resources classed under these subject headings in a library in your area, we suggest performing a subject search in either your local library’s catalog or the WorldCat catalog External.
