It is difficult to imagine a body of law more sensitive to changes in our society than the law of family provision. This highly anticipated Fourth Edition of Family Provision in Australia
has been completely updated. It includes new sections on public policy, pre-nuptial agreements, mediation in New South Wales and Queensland, applicants with a criminal record and the calculation of lump sums. The sections on factors warranting in New South Wales, costs in a failed application, the effect of estrangement on orders, and orders after a distribution, have been heavily revised.
De Groot and Nickel's text has long been regarded as the keystone text in this area of law. It contains a comprehensive analysis of the general principles involved in family provision claims, analysis of cases so as to give a guide to probable orders, as well as useful case tables summarising judicial decisions. Family Provision in Australia
is an essential text for anyone practising in this area of law.
