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, divorce coaches, family therapists, and other divorce professionals. We also welcome relevant content from technology, software, practice management, and health and wellness experts.

You will be writing for your peers, so please 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”.

4 Guidelines for Submitting Articles

If you wish to contribute an article geared towards people experiencing separation or divorce rather than family law professionals, you can do so via our two consumer websites: DivorceMag.com and DivorcedMoms.com.

  1. You must be an experienced professional working in the divorce and family law arena or an expert who provides services to them (see the list in the first paragraph, above).
  2. Your article:
    • Should be about 1,200 words in length; minimum 600 words and maximum 2,500 words.
    • Must be highly relevant to family lawyers and other professionals working in the family law/divorce arena.
    • Must be clear, easy to read, and ready for publishing.
    • Cannot be an advertorial for your service or product.
    • Can be an excerpt from your non-fiction book.
    • Should preferably be original and not previously published on the Internet. We will consider articles that have been posted on your own blog/website or another niche website with limited readership; such an article must include a disclosure: “A version of this article originally appeared on www.My Blog.com.
  3. In the event we publish your article:
    • You will receive attribution in the form of a “byline” and an “author credit” (max. 50 words) with a link to your website at the end of the article.
    • You agree not to post the article elsewhere online – with the exception of your own website or blog.
    • FamilyLawyerMagazine.com reserves the right to edit the article for content, house style, length, and SEO (Search Engine Optimization), and to add one or more images to the article.
    • FamilyLawyerMagazine.com reserves the right to keep the content on the website indefinitely.
    • You retain ownership and copyright of the original, pre-edited article.
  4. By submitting your article, you are deemed to have accepted the Terms and Conditions in the Contribution Agreement for Writers. If you do not accept our Terms and Conditions, please do not submit your article to us.

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. Please submit your article via email to: Editors@FamilyLawyerMagazine.com.
