The Family Law Handbook, 2nd Edition is a practical guide for people involved in or thinking about separation or divorce. Written in plain English, it explains the workings of the Australian system of family law, including recent major changes to the law affecting family relationships. The Handbook sets out choices and practical issues and tasks that face a separating couple.
The Family Law Handbook is invaluable in that it discusses not only how the family court works, but all aspects of separation, including:
* what to do after the breakdown of a marriage or de facto relationship
* negotiating with your former partner
* understand the court process and requirments
* understanding the mandatory dispute resolution processes
* making the best possible arrangements for your children
* successfully achieving a fair property settlement
* going to court, with or without your lawyer.
The Handbook contains samples of parenting plan provisions, court orders, forms and affidavits that can be adapted for individual use, and a list of useful contacts and resources.
The Family Law Handbook, 2nd Edition is not only a must-have for those going through a family law matter, it is also a most valuable reference for workers in the field of family law; including counsellors, mediators, educators, social workers, public servants, students and legal practitioners.
