The Family Law A to Z Book was created by rubytuesday
Two Wikivorce members have recently written and published a reference book aimed at those who are self-representing, lay advisers and law students - or indeed anyone working in the field of family law.

Writing the book has taken Nick ( Forseti ) and myself a great deal of time and research, but it has also been a fascinating exercise which has introduced us to many strange and wonderful terms we might not otherwise have encountered, such as Avizandum, Christmas Order or Xydhias Agreement.

We thought that the A to Z format would be the best way to get the information across in a readily usable way -the book explains procedure, what forms are required for which application, entries have extensive definitions including any relevant case/statute law and additional information. Amazon allows you to have a look inside the book, so you can get a taste of the contents

Will the A-Z help in expanding your knowledge of family law? Absolutely! It''s comprehensive, detailed and covers all aspects of family law - both private and public child law, Ancillary Relief , divorce, annulment , separation , court forms , court processes, cohabitation , and everything inbetween.

The Institute of Paralegals has said this about our book in the most recent edition of their monthly journal:

Editor''s note
This month I would like to flag the remarkable depth of expertise that many paralegals have. Ruth Langford is a Fellow of the Institute of Paralegals and has just co-written "The Family Law A to Z: A reference book for litigants and students". Ruth says: "The idea for our A to Z had been brewing for a long time before we wrote it. We were both very aware that there was a shortage of good, accurate legal information for unrepresented litigants, and that the law is often very confusing for ordinary parents who don''t have the time to invest in becoming their own lawyers.
We really hope the A to Z will become an indispensable tool for litigants, lawyers, advisers and students; we are very open to suggestions for improvements and new entries."
The book is available from Amazon click here .

I bought it, to be honest not expecting much from what is s cheap book, legal text books are expensive, Roger Birds AR book costs £90, others can be much more, to my suprise the A-Z book is a very comprehensive work, 440 pages and covers just about every term you will come across, I even tried to find strange things, Edgar order for example, but even that is in with a very nice explanation indeed, I even went as far as to try and catch the authors out looking for Anton Piller order, which rightly does not appear.

If you have a financial issue or even child contact it''s a great book to keep handy, it will save hours and hours of research, it''s ever so easy to use, comprehensive explanations and all in plain English, £15 I paid so great value for money, if you are a law student it''s a must have book.

Well done to the writers, I wish it had existed years ago when I was learning (still am).

I love A-Z formats and books of lists to just dip into randomly so looking forward to a good read.
