bThis book considers the impact of insolvency and the claims of creditors on the family. The conflict between the interests of the creditors and the interests of the family is not easy to resolve particularly in the context of a marriage breakdown, bankruptcy, or where claims concern the possession of the family home. The book provides commentary on the existing regime, covering both contentious and non-contentious matters, and acts as a guide for family and insolvency practitioners who already have an understanding of basic procedures but need guidance on the complexities when these two areas come into conflict.
