Fader's Maryland Family Law, so named in honor of its founding author, the Honorable John F. Fader II (retired), is the preeminent treatise on matrimonial law in Maryland. It includes a full analysis of the Maryland law regarding divorce, custody, child support, alimony, agreements, attorney's fees, and property distribution, as well as domestic violence and the Maryland family court process, which includes the court system's Parenting Plan Protocol.

The Seventh Edition is the work product of Honorable Cynthia Callahan (retired) and Thomas C. Ries, Esquire, who have co-authored this publication since 2008 and have decades of family law practice experience and perspective.
