Indian communities have settled and thrived in the United Kingdom and many other commonwealth countries. The retention of ties with families remaining in India has meant that where family law issues arise they frequently have cross-border dimensions, for example, as to the validity of an Indian marriage. Domestic practitioners are ill-equipped to address such problems.

This handbook has been written specifically to assist the family lawyer acting for Indian clients. It describes relevant Indian law and religious custom, ranging from marriage to divorce and covering adoption and abduction and property issues. In addition, it explains the English law applicable to such matters.

The book cites a wealth of Indian case law that is otherwise not readily available to the non-Indian lawyer
