    • This 900-page soft cover resource is a complete revision and comprehensive update by Michael E. Bertin, Esquire and the Honorable Emanuel A. Bertin of Judge Bertin's original 1983 book, which was the first treatise on child custody law in Pennsylvania, and has been highly regarded as the standard in the field for almost 30 years. The authors have created a remarkable book (and ebook) of carefully condensed law, together with hundreds of well analyzed and indexed cases (Pennsylvania, federal and county), full text of child custody statutes and related Rules, the Hague Convention, and the most-needed forms. Close attention is given to the most recent revamp of child custody law, Act No. 112 of 2010 (23 Pa.C.S. § 5321 et seq.), effective in 2011. This statute had its genesis from the work product of the Pennsylvania Joint State Government Commission Domestic Relations Advisory Committee, chaired by Judge Bertin, with final input from the Legislative Committee of the Family Law Section of the Pennsylvania Bar Association with substantial contribution thereto from Michael E. Bertin, Esquire, a family law practitioner and partner in the law firm of Obermayer Rebmann Maxwell & Hippel LLP. This is the one resource you will need at your fingertips to address any issue regarding Child Custody law in Pennsylvania.
