A Handbook for Litigants in Person
Lucy Reed
3rd Edition, 31st August 2017
Bath Publishing Limited

The Family Court without a Lawyer is the book that all those who have to go to court to sort out issues over separation, money or children and do not have a lawyer to represent them need. This thoroughly revised 3rd edition has been fully updated to explain the new law and procedures in force from June 2017.

It includes a substantially re-written chapter on domestic violence, a new section on special measures for vulnerable parties, more detailed information on international aspects of children and finance issues and a fully updated finance chapter to include maintenance, bankruptcy and social media evidence in relation to disclosure. The book includes advice such as: what to expect and where to go when at the court; what to think about when deciding to call a witness; how to challenge a judge's decision through an appeal;clear explanations of legal terms, jargon and concepts. All this practical advice and support makes The Family Court without a Lawyer much more than just a DIY divorce book. It is a practical tool to help unrepresented litigants in court and a reference to help them understand what happens in the Family Court, whether or not they have a lawyer. The Family Court without a Lawyer is also useful for those supporting someone through the court process; who have a lawyer but want to gain a better understanding of what is going on; or who want to consider the available options before going to court. The Family Court without a Lawyer is essential reading for Family Litigants in Person, Advice and support agencies involved in family breakdown and family law solicitors.
