The book contains commentary on and analysis of the Children and Families Act 2014, Pts 1 and 2, which deal with family justice, including clear and comprehensive guidance for practitioners on the new regime and relevant rules/practice directions. The rationale behind the Act is discussed, through analysis of the origins of the need for reform, reflecting back to the Norgrove report and Ryder J’s work.

The primary market for the book is the legal profession, including barristers and solicitors. However, given the withdrawal of legal aid from April 2013 in private law cases, the book provides clear practice guides, summaries and glossaries of legal terms with a view to expanding the market to include litigants in person who are negotiating their own way through the system.
