Family Law in Australia identifies the underlying principles of family law by examining the historical, social and legal background to the present law. It discusses the evolution of family law in its contemporary context and critically evaluates patterns of past and future reforms.
The eighth edition of Family Law in Australia has been restructured and fully revised by a team of authors highly experienced in family law. The comprehensive, detailed and accessible analysis of key family law issues and their positioning in the social environment make this text invaluable both for practitioners and for scholarly and vocational study in law.
· New chapter added on dispute resolution in family law · Coverage throughout of recent case law and legislation including changes in parenting, property and de facto relationships · Includes material on the psychological context of family breakdown and attachment theory · Family violence chapter rewritten including consideration of the impact of legislative amendments
