Family Law provides a comprehensive foundation in the key topics covered by undergraduate and CPE/GDL courses. It explains the basic principles of the law in their social and economic context and includes enough detail of the contemporary infrastructure to assist the reader in understanding the present radical changes in family justice which are now responding to cultural and other influences. This second edition has been fully updated in the light of on-going changes to the family justice system including:

  • the modernisation of Family litigation
  • the new administrative extra-judicial divorce process
  • financial orders on family relationship breakdown (both married and unmarried and also the new private ordering in child support)
  • enhanced parental responsibility
  • the treatment of post separation parenting
  • the new Family Court
  • reforms to public child law
  • same sex marriage and the impact on traditional marriage and cohabitation
  • changes to adoption.
