The New Law Journal said of the first edition: 'What I particularly liked about the book was its clarity ...At the end of each chapter there is a summary which must be a considerable revision aid for students ...This book ...tackles the issues which practitioners have to deal with on a day to day basis.' Family Law provides a clear and comprehensive account of a rapidly developing subject. Besides detailed coverage of statute and case-law, current trends and proposals for reform are included. The second edition has been extensively revised and updated to cover the reform of divorce law and the law of domestic violence made by the Family Law Act 1996. It includes the recent changes in Family Law introduced in the Child Support Act 1995, the Pensions Act 1995 and the Housing Act 1996, as well as the wealth of cases decided under the Children Act 1989. The book's revised structure takes account of the increasing importance of cohabitation.
