Pensions: A Handbook for the Family Law Practitioner is a practical guide dealing with pensions in the context of family law in Ireland.

There is no other book in the Irish market dealing directly with this topic. Pensions are one of the most valuable marital assets and cause problems every day for family law practitioners. As a result, many barristers and solicitors employ a pension expert to advise on drafting pension adjustment orders, which leads to delays in cases and increased legal costs.

The book provides a guide to practitioners through the minefield of pension adjustment orders and other pension aspects of family law. A highly practical book, it contains commentary, legislation, precedents and forms. It includes coverage of the Family Law Act 1995 and the Family Law (Divorce) Act 1996 and regulations.
