This book takes a practical approach to explain both the law and procedure governing two orders - residence (determining with whom a child should live) and contact (determining who a child is to see). From the initial application to the final hearing, practitioners will find coverage of all the issues upon which they need to advise their clients in this comprehensive and reliable handbook. * Explains the radical reforms of the Children Act 1989 relating to residence and contact orders, ensuring that practitioners understand the law completely and can advise clients with confidence * Examines in depth every stage of an application so that practitioners know exactly what needs to be done * Practical - includes forms, precedents and a table to streamline procedure * Includes Practice Directions, procedural tables and a checklist, so practitioners can be sure that nothing has been missed.
