Family law in America by Sanford N Katz( Book )

51 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume examines the present state of family law in America. Among its themes is the tension between individual autonomy and governmental regulation in all aspects of family law. It examines both conventional and new definitions of formal and informal domestic relationships. It analyses the extent to which relationships established before marriage are being regulated, and how marriage is being redefined to take into account equality of the sexes. It demonstrates how the definition of marriage as a partnership in which the individual spouse's rights are recognized has resulted in protection of the vulnerable spouse. It examines fault and no-fault divorce procedures and the extent to which these procedures reflect social realities. The book describes state intervention into the patent and child relationship and how this is reflected in the re-examination of the privacy of the family unit. It concludes with a discussion of the conventional model of adoption of children and how additional models are being developed to take into account new family forms."--Jacket

Adoptions without agencies : a study of independent adoptions by William Meezan( Book )

4 editions published in 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purposes of this national study of independent, nonagency adoptions were: (1) to determine the experience of the parties involved (biological parents, adoptive parents, agencies, intermediaries, and law enforcement agents); (2) to identify agency policies, procedures and resources that deter agency adoptions and thus encourage independent adoptions; and (3) to identify weaknesses in state laws and regulations and their enforcement that allow abuses of the independent adoption process to continue. The study involved: (1) an analysis of adoption laws and regulations and their enforcement in all 50 states; (2) a questionnaire survey of one voluntary and one public adoption agency in each state to obtain information on their knowledge of independent adoption; and (3) an investigation of independent adoptions in 5 cities through personal interviews with adopting parents, biological mothers who relinquished children aged 2 or under, and independent adoption facilitators. Major topics focused on in the analysis included the role of adoption agencies; adoptive parents' concerns, their agency experiences, feelings about adoption and the risk involved; the experiences and concerns of the biological parents; the facilitators' involvement in the adoption field and with adoptive and biological parents; laws on adoptive placement; responses of attorneys general/district attorneys pertaining to the enforcement of state adoption laws; and policy recommendations for legal and agency changes that would reduce or eliminate the risks of independent adoptions.
