The 8th Edition of this work is a comprehensive, well-thought out collection of cases, commentary, digests, notes and questions dealing with the key areas of family law. It is intended as the fundamental text for introductory courses in family law, but, as with previous editions, it is also a useful initial research source for practitioners.

This book provides up-to-date coverage of the main building blocks of every family law course, including the law of property for both married and unmarried cohabitants, spousal support, child support, custody and access, and domestic agreements. It has coverage of emerging aspects of family law as well, such as evolving concepts of parentage, judicial interviews in custody and access cases, the impact of domestic violence on family law outcomes, and statistical trends that affect major family law areas.

The 8th edition includes:

  • An expanded and revised property chapter, that deals in depth with unjust enrichment and constructive trust claims
  • Broadened discussion of spousal support, including a detailed analysis of entitlement
  • Concise digests at the beginning of each chapter, summarizing the topics covered
  • A new chapter covering evolving concepts of parentage
  • Useful descriptions of the procedures followed in the practice of family law
  • More detailed consideration of issues involving children, including factors affecting custody and access decisions, and coverage of all aspects of the Child Support Guidelines
