Michael, Jean
A bilingual pamphlet containing practical law-related information for recent Russian Jewish immigrants to New York City, this document concerns family matters. Following a brief description of the Newcomer series, 9 questions are listed, each followed by an answer. Questions asked include a definition of the family; legal requirements for getting married; an explanation of common law marriage; legal responsibilities of parents for their children; definitions of child abuse and neglect; grounds for divorce and annulment; and legal advice regarding equitable property distribution, support, and child custody following a divorce. A final page, titled "Where to Go for Help," lists the addresses and phone numbers of the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service and the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, Inc. (CBC)
