Recent Changes in Laws Affecting Stepfamilies: Suggestions for Legal Reform.
Fine, Mark A.; Fine, David R.
Family Relations, v41 n3 p334-40 Jul 1992
Updates status of laws affecting stepfamilies. Reviews four legal areas: stepparents supporting stepchildren during marriage and following divorce; stepchildren inheriting from deceased stepparent; stepparents receiving custody of stepchildren following termination of remarriage; and stepparents visiting stepchildren following divorce. Suggests that legislatures and courts have become more sensitive to stepparent-stepchild relationships. (Author/NB)
