This year’s summary of family law cases covers approximately the period of August 31, 2017, through August 31, 2018. The case digests are presented in a topical outline format and alphabetized by state within each topic heading. This summary does not include every case from every jurisdiction but highlights some of the more important, or interesting, cases. Many digests are a result of reports submitted by lawyers in a state, our state reporters. The majority were added by the Family Law Quarterly student staff or editors.
