This Third Edition of Law of Family Protection and Testamentary Promises updates and extends the comprehensive text on New Zealand’s laws relating to wills and inheritance. It includes changes to family protection laws brought about by the enactment of the Property (Relationships) Act 1976, and the subsequent repeal of the Matrimonial Property Act 1963, and changes to procedure brought about by the Family Courts Rules 2002 and the High Court Amendment Rules 2003. It also notes that a more conservative approach is being taken by the Courts in dealing with family protection claims generally.

In Law of Family Protection and Testamentary Promises Bill Patterson draws on his experience as a leading practitioner and commentator to provide an interesting and accessible text. The inclusion and commentary on the latest case law from New Zealand as well as overseas makes Law of Family Protection and Testamentary Promises an invaluable resource for all practitioners, as well as family law academics and students.
