Guidelines for Submitting Articles to Family Lawyer Magazine

Since 2012, Family Lawyer Magazine’s reputation has been built on providing high-quality content from a wide range of top professionals, including family law attorneys, judges, mediators, financial analysts, forensic accountants, business valuators, custody evaluators, therapists, and other divorce professionals. We also welcome relevant content from technology, software, and practice management experts.

All articles/proposals should be geared towards your fellow professionalsnot towards divorcing people (if you wish to submit an article geared towards people going through divorce, you can do so through our two consumer websites: DivorceMag.com and  DivorcedMoms.com).

Since you will be writing for your peers, we encourage you to address relatively advanced and/or niche topics; you should assume readers have a solid grasp of family law basics, and some have been practicing for many years. For topic ideas, please see “Write for Family Lawyer Magazine”.

Depending upon our editorial needs, we may consider your article for publication in the print Family Lawyer Magazine. We will contact you if this is the case.
