Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0156005239, Paperback)

Every Parent's Guide to the Law is an easy-to-understand and easy-to-reference resource guide to parenting and the law that no family should be without. You may know when to expect your child to begin teething or how to give a "time out," but do you know enough about kids and tax issues? What about parental rights in the workplace? As Deborah L. Forman, a nationally known expert on family law and author of Every Parent's Guide to the Law, writes, "...the law has something to say about virtually every aspect of child rearing, from the decision to start a family to the fate of children after parents die."

Forman provides information on your teen's right to contraception, the ins and outs of adoption procedures, ways to deal with the juvenile court system, a pregnant woman's obligation to her fetus, gay parents' rights, fathers' rights, medical care regulations, laws regarding sperm and egg donation, what you can expect at a child support hearing, your child's right to disability education, and much more. This "big book" has legal information on everything that might possibly concern a parent. Laws differ from state to state, so by definition a book like this cannot supplant good legal assistance, but Every Parent's Guide to the Law is a good place to look before you call the lawyer.
