Every day we encounter the rules of law - whether it's obtaining the correct forms to write a will to fighting a traffic ticket to filing bankruptcy. The Marathon County Public Library has a variety of up-to-date law books available to help people on legal matters large and small.
New law books include the following:
*David Hudson's THE HANDY LAW ANSWER BOOK provides answers to hundreds of legal questions.
*Ralph Warner's 101 LAW FORMS FOR PERSONAL USE contains examples of the most-used legal forms.
*If you're contemplating a lawsuit, check out THE COMPLETE IDIOT'S GUIDE TO LAWSUITS.
*To help understand landlord-tenant relationships, look for Portman and Stewart's companion volumes: EVERY TENANT'S LEGAL GUIDE and EVERY LANDLORD'S LEGAL GUIDE.
Legal issues involving neighbors are explained in Jordan and Doskow's NEIGHBOR LAW: FENCES, TREES AND NOISE.
If you're puzzling over the Probate process, look for Mary Randolph's 8 WAYS TO AVOID PROBATE.
Wills, estate planning and other related issues are covered in THE AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION GUIDE TO WILLS AND ESTATES.
Lastly, Ronald Sharp's LIVING TRUSTS FOR EVERYONE explains the differences and advantages of wills versus trusts.
