Expedite your research and make family law cases more understandable

To get the ultimate research tool for Wisconsin family law attorneys and judges, look no further. Family Law Casenotes and Quotes puts three volumes of critical information at your disposal — thoroughly indexed for fast retrieval. 


Compiling family law cases published since the Divorce Reform Act of 1977 (and noteworthy, citable unpublished opinions issued after July I, 2009), Family Law Casenotes and Quotes tackles the many issues that commonly come up in family law cases. From abduction to paternity to visitation (and all areas in between), you’ll quickly get the information you need to bolster your case! 


Each entry provides:

  1. The case’s name and full citation, including subsequent history
  2. The name of the trial court judge and the county in which the case was heard
  3. The name of the appellate judge who wrote the decision
  4. A concise statement of the case’s relevant facts, including procedural aspects
  5. The case’s important quotations and pinpoint citations for those quotations
  6. Bolded subject terms highlighting each case’s most important topics


Add it all together, and you get relevant information that’s easy to find. Not only does the book arrange the cases in the order in which they appear in the official Wisconsin case reporter volumes, but the index also alphabetizes the key subject terms that identify each case’s major topics. These major topics are then broken into subheadings, allowing you to pinpoint the information you need.  


To keep you on top of the decisions that could affect your cases, Family Law Casenotes and Quotes is updated three times annually — ensuring you have up-to-date information and allowing you to structure your cases and arguments using the most recent decisions in your favor. 

The Fifth Edition

The updated fifth edition (November 2015) replaces the fourth edition (published in November 2014 and updated through July 2015). It includes revisions to existing casenotes, as well as new cases addressing:

  • Modification of child support and custody
  • Paternity
  • Contempt
  • Property division
  • Maintenance
  • Same-sex marriage

In addition, the book's index and tables have been updated to incorporate the new and revised casenotes.

Stay current with the latest supplement

The November 2016 supplement includes four new casenotes. They address issues such as paternity, contempt, and collateral attack. In addition, the book’s index and tables have been updated to incorporate these new casenotes.

The April 2017 supplement includes three new casenotes. They address issues of property division and physical placement (when one parent is incarcerated), contempt, and modification of physical placement. The book’s index and tables have been updated to incorporate these new casenotes.
