In his well-respected family law text, Anthony Dickey QC offers readers a comprehensive outline of the substantive rules of family law in Australia. This edition of Family Law provides in depth coverage of the Commonwealth legislative scheme, which is today the dominant source of family law in Australia.

Substantially revised, this edition incorporates a significant number of changes to the law, for example, to marriage, bankruptcy and child support. However, it is the inclusion of substantial changes made to the law by the Family Law Amendment (Shared Parental Responsibility) Act 2006, taking effect from 1 July 2006, which makes Family Law the most up to date family law text on the market.
