Published in Strategies for Family Law in California: Leading Lawyers on Understanding Developments in California Family Law, 2016 ed., Cindy’s chapter, The Post-Nuclear Family: Changing Definitions of What Constitutes a Familial Relationship focuses on the extent to which advances in reproductive technology and shifts in cultural norms have altered static assumptions about what constitutes a family.
Also discussed, a far more mundane, but perennial topic—how to get paid. Regardless of whether an attorney is fighting over a cutting-edge legal issue or a garden-variety property dispute, obtaining payment in a family law case can be a challenge in instances where there is a disparity in resources between the spouses. Other wrinkles arise where one spouse has access to funds outside the community. Cindy’s chapter discusses recent case law squarely addressing the issue.
