Lawyers dealing with the breakdown of families on low incomes are frequently required to advise on welfare benefits and related issues (for example, debt and housing) when considering what constitutes an appropriate financial settlement for the parties involved. "Finance on Family Breakdown for Low Income Families" examines, in a single volume, the practicalities of the situation when a practitioner is faced with such a client.
The scope of this new work extends beyond traditional inter-spousal ancillary relief claims to consider such areas as child support, welfare benefits and tax credits. Structured examples throughout the text explore the different positions on family breakdown of married couples; unmarried partners (with or without children) and same sex couples.
The book is an invaluable source of law, fact and figures for all lawyers and welfare benefits advisors involved in this important and complex area of practice.
