Overview


A Practical Approach to Family Law provides a clear picture of the law and practice relating to family proceedings in family proceedings courts, county courts, and the High Court. Its breadth of coverage and accessible style has made it an essential resource for students and practitioners alike.

The ninth edition has been completely updated to take full account of recent developments, including the many significant changes brought about by the Family Procedure Rules 2010. The book also covers The Forced Marriage (Civil Protection) Act 2007; changes to the Children Act, including enforcement of orders and risk assessment; new Practice Directions on domestic violence, media in court and McKenzie friends guidance; changes to ancillary relief since Miller and McFarlane; new material on pre-nuptial agreements; the replacement of the Child Support Agency; and changes to Legal Aid.

Very much a practical guide, the book makes extensive use of examples and key documents to assist the busy practitioner and student. With additional advice on library, information, and professional development resources, A Practical Approach to Family Law provides real assistance in dealing with this dynamic area of law.

The A Practical Approach series is the perfect partner for practice work. Each title focuses on one field of the law and provides a comprehensive overview of the subject together with clear, practical advice and tips on issues likely to arise in practice. The books are also an excellent resource for those new to the law, where the expert overview and clear layout promotes clarity and ease of understanding.
