Family Law

I'm taking a break from studying family law right now. As much as I want to be engrossed in the topic, my mind has been drifting. It's not just family law, mind you - it's the same with all my classes. I'll read, and it's gone as soon as my eyes see the next word. I sometimes think I should stop with the charade and yield to my brain, which wants to spend time thinking about anything else.

But I can't. I have to learn about SAPCRs, and when a child can be interviewed in the judge's chambers without the parents there. I need to learn about JMC, SMC, Temporary Orders, Limited spousal support, caps on child support, protective orders, marriage requirements, common law marriage (fortunately, there's no such thing as common law divorce), annulments, majority, emancipation, etc. etc. etc.

This has been a long semester so far. And it's coming to an end far too quickly.

Family law, hard to studier, harder to practice. I've dipped my toes in a lot of legal waters, but have assiduously avoided that one. Good luck regaining your focus.

P-Man, this must be the "work you to death" part that the Dean warned us about

Bookworm, I've not felt stress like this in school yet. I don't know what exactly I should do to get that focus back.

Heidi, thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy and come back often.

Steve, quit complaining. Nobody wants to read about your stress points.

Toward the end of the semester, it always seems that there is so much to do, but so little time in which to do it. That Thanksgiving break in the fall semester was always nice, as opposed to the spring semester, where you jump right into finals after classes end. Good luck.

Speaking of families, I have the best of the best. My children are my delight. My children-in-law give me joy. My grands light up my world
