Family law is a delicate subject simply by virtue of the fact that it is about the breakup of the family. The tone of the book encourages doing what’s in the best interests of children at all times. Many precedents are attached to the main text which aim to help new practitioners in this area.

Important cases covered in this edition:

    The landmark decision of LKW v DD [2010] 13 HKCFAR 537 in the Court of Final Appeal — Sets out clear guidelines for the courts and practitioners to follow in respect of marital property division The Court of Final Appeal case of KEWS v NCHC [2013] concerning the financial support from third parties and categorically disapproved of previous family court decisions which allowed for ‘judicious encouragement’ which allowed the court to frame an order in such a way as to ‘encourage’ third parties to provide financial support to one of the parties

Includes a significant section on child maintenance where the parties are unmarried — an increasing trend in Hong Kong
