Thomson/ West will be publishing the first edition of the Arizona Family Law Rules Handbook early in 2008. I had the honor of being a co-author of this book along with Mark Armstrong, Shirley Wahl and Dan McAuliffe.
Dan has authored the Civil Rules Handbook (as well as numerous other publications) for Thomson/ West for years, and graciously agreed to have the relevant portions of the Civil Rules Handbook added to the Family Law Rules Handbook for easy reference. So, for example, if you are reviewing Family Law Rule 42 regarding service of process outside the state, the McAuliffe comments and references regarding Civil Rule 4.2 are published right alongside the family law rule. Commentary on the history of the family law rule is included, along with pending changes that will take effect January 1, 2008, and future changes that could take effect January 1, 2009.
