Family Law takes a highly practical, student-centred approach to the essential law and procedure at the heart of family law. Providing a comprehensive guide to the subject, it focuses on relationship breakdown, money and property, children, and domestic abuse. A concise writing style and short chapters ensure focused learning, while chapter summaries and self-test questions help students to consolidate their knowledge and identify areas for further study. Throughout the book case studies and examples are used, demonstrating how family law applies in practice and helping to prepare students for their future careers. The book also features diagrams and flowcharts throughout, helping to improve understanding of complex processes or areas of difficulty. Topics that are covered include: family law practice and the first interview; public funding; alternative dispute resolution in family law; judicial separation and nullity; divorce; defences to divorce; jurisdiction; procedure for a matrimonial order; the Civil Partnership Act 2004; dissolution of a civil partnership; financial orders following divorce or dissolution; financial orders; pre-marital agreements; procedure for financial orders; variation, collection, and enforcement of financial orders; protecting assets and the family home in financial order proceedings; separation and maintenance agreements; child support; pensions in financial proceedings; and taxation in family law.
