Hey, family lawyer! Have you checked out the West Key Number System lately?

August 12, 2010

On August 2, West attorney-editors completed sweeping changes to the Divorce topic in the West Key Number System, resulting in the reclassification of approximately 210,000 headnotes.

Issues relating to economic aspects of a divorce—spousal support, property division, and costs and attorney fees—were particularly affected. For example, West attorney-editors created comprehensive asset categories for issues related to property and equitable distribution, integrated separation agreements throughout the Divorce topic, and gathered together attorney fee and cost issues (formerly in several locations).

Look for significant revisions to the Corporations topic, as well as a newly created Common Interest Communities topic, in the spring of 2011.
