The particular nature of family law has seen the rules of evidence increasingly diverge from those of civil litigation in general. No family lawyer can prepare or advocate a client's case without a proper understanding of the applicable rules of evidence.;""Evidence in Family Proceedings"" tackles this area and takes full account of the recent civil procedure changes and their effect.
The authors of this definitive text cover every type of case that falls within family proceedings and explain the rules relevant to each, from mainstream topics such as ancillary relief through to child abduction and paternity.
Appendices reproduce the relevant statutory material. Other topics covered include: appeals; relevance and proportionality; expert evidence; forms of evidence - primary, secondary and tertiary; estoppel, judicial notice, presumptions; exclusionary rules and discretion to exclude evidence; and the ancillary relief pilot scheme.
