Submitting Articles and News

Family Law News encourages Section members to submit articles, information of a newsworthy nature, etc. for this newsletter.  Articles should be typed, double-spaced, and of a length comparable to what you have seen in this newsletter in the past.  If you can, send a computer disc, which identifies the computer format and word processing program used.  Even better, email it to  but tell us you are doing so, so that we don’t miss it.  Send as a Word file if possible, otherwise as WordPerfect 5.1.  Contents should be sent to the Editor, Richard E. Crouch, 2111 Wilson Boulevard, Suite 950, Arlington, VA 22201.

We print four newsletters per year.  We have had to move up the deadlines for all issues so that the Summer issue can be distributed at the Annual Meeting.  Until further notice, the deadlines for submission of copy are as follows:

Spring – February 10

Fall – August 10

Summer – April 20

Winter – November 10

Please remember that the contents should be submitted well before the deadline to allow time for our working with the author on any needed revisions.  Articles which come in nearest the deadline are subject to more arbitrary editing, or run more chance of being overset to the next issue.  The Editor also actively solicits comments from Section members on what they would like to see in the newsletter, and would rather see less of, etc.  Do not expect to see these comments in print, however, as we do not have a letters column.
