Family law is a dynamic subject that is constantly changing and provides a challenge to everyone involved with it. Family Law and Practice offers a clear picture of the practical considerations that arise when advising in a divorce case.

It sets out the divorce procedure, explains the financial implications of divorce and includes advice on ensuring that clients receive the money that they are owed. The book also outlines the principles governing the care and protection of children, the remedies available for victims of domestic abuse and the public funding regime in family cases.

This new edition has been fully updated to include the latest position in relation to pilot schemes in financial proceedings and the practical steps needed to be taken to comply with the amended PD 28A on costs. The book is fully up to date on case law including JD and A v United Kingdom (2020) and Secretary of State for Work and Pensions v Johnson (2020)on universal credit; CB v KB (2020) on the amount of supplementary child benefit which should be paid; W v H(Divorce financial remedies) (2020) on pensions; RC v JC (2020) on the compensation principle in financial cases; and S v H (2020) on bankruptcy.
