The book provides the busy practitioner with a comprehensive guide, bringing together in one place the myriad rules relating to how settlements are reached, approved, and re-opened in all types of family law cases.

The main focus is on financial remedies cases, dealing with the status of agreements, converting those agreements into court orders, and the grounds and procedure on setting aside those orders.

In addition this book addresses compromise agreements in cases concerning children, including private law children, care, adoption and surrogacy, as well as in family injunction cases.
