2015 Legislation Highlights: The Year in Review
During the past year, significant legislation was enacted that affects family law. The continuing collaboration between Continuing Education of the Bar (CEB) and the Family Law Section continues to reap benefits for our members. The Family Law News is pleased to once again publish the CEB Year in Review. Each year, CEB publishes a detailed compilation of important case law and legislative developments on issues ranging from attorneys fees to child custody to enforcement.
Reprinted below for your review and easy reference are the key legislation during late 2014 and 2015. Except as indicated otherwise, all legislation discussed is operative January 1, 2016.
Due to space constraints, the Family Law News is unable to publish the list of new cases in this issue. The next issue of the Family Law News will include the CEB case summaries. In the meantime, please continue to take advantage of Judge Burke’s case summaries that come through on a regular basis to keep fresh on legal developments coming from the courts. Thanks again to CEB for supporting the education of the Family Law Section.
