Family Law Quarterly

Vol. 51, No. 4, The Year 2017 in Review

Dear Family Law Quarterly readers: Welcome to our first all-electronic issue. The previous issue marked our last to arrive in paper form. We hope that electronic-only issues will be as welcomed as the print versions have been for so many years, and we hope that we will be able to innovate with the new format to provide up-to-date and interesting information that we might not have been able to provide in a more static paper format. Thank you for your patience as we continue to evolve the process. Best, Kendra Huard Fershee, Editor in Chief
