The Children and Family Relationships Act 2015 gives legal recognition to the many different and diverse relationships that exist in modern day Ireland. It is the most comprehensive amendment to the law on children and family relationships in many decades. The author, Dr Geoffrey Shannon, in Children and Family Relationships Law in Ireland: Practice and Procedure, examines, analyses and explains this new legal regime.
Children and Family Relationships Law in Ireland: Practice and Procedure addresses a wide-range of new issues. These include:
Under the 2015 Act a parent or another eligible adult can apply to court for guardianship. An eligible adult is a person who is married to or in a civil partnership with a child’s parent, or has cohabited with the child’s parent for three years and shared responsibility for the child’s care for a two year period. Persons who have cared for the child for one year, where no other parent or guardian is able or willing to fulfil the rights and duties of the role, may also be eligible to apply for guardianship. This therefore allows foster parents and other adults who provide day-to-day care for children to apply for guardianship.
The Children and Family Relationships Act 2015 is far reaching and, as illustrated, fundamentally changes family law in Ireland. Children and Family Relationships Law in Ireland: Practice and Procedure is the first book to address the far reaching changes.
