The South Carolina Family Lawyer's Toolkit, Third Edition, is just what its name implies: a practical handbook designed by and for the busy practitioner containing quick references on the most important issues in a family law practice and trial. The Toolkit is a must-have handbook that addresses both procedural and substantive issues and is recommended by family law attorneys and the family court bench.
Fully updated and expanded since the Second Edition in 2010, the Toolkit contains new and improved questions/scripts for divorce, name change, equitable division, adoptions, custody cases, expert witnesses and more. It also provides relevant objections, evidentiary foundations, and includes a new electronic evidence section. The Toolkit also provides newly created UCCJEA and UIFSA jurisdictional flow charts for the practicing attorney.
As an added bonus, a CD is included, allowing you to print just the pages you need for your next court hearing.
