Introduction

The UPA and UNCVA: An Analysis of Recent Updates

By Kendra Huard Fershee

In this issue, Family Law Quarterly is replaying some of its greatest hits (updated)! We are pleased to have four esteemed authors share their commentary on two important uniform acts that have been revised in the recent past. First, Professor Courtney Joslin has written a detailed breakdown of the 2017 revisions to the Uniform Parentage Act (UPA), which is richly informed by her role as the Reporter for this update to the UPA. Her birds-eye view of the formation of the current changes is invaluable to understanding how those changes might work and be implemented in states that, for example, are languishing under antiquated statutes that do not address the parentage issues that have arisen after the constitutional recognition of same-sex marriage.
