Australian Family Law

An essential, practical and time saving tool, this four volume work contains all the information necessary to prepare a family law case — a one-stop shop for federal legislation relating to family law. Australian Family Law also provides guidance on how recent changes will affect day-to-day family law practice. The streamlined product has been designed so that you don't have to wade through unwanted or duplicated material. The following main areas are covered:

Family Court Legislation — provides detailed commentary on the Family Law Act (Cth), Regulations and 2004 Rules. In-depth annotations enable you to see at a glance what the law is, and its interpretation.

Family Court Practice — provides comprehensive coverage of child support, including both legislation and commentary, relevant WA Family Court legislation with commentary, Family Court practice directions, Federal Circuit Court practice directions, marriage legislation, commentary on costs, and tables and general information. Prescribed and non-prescribed forms are also reproduced.

Related Commonwealth Legislation/Bulletins — provides related Commonwealth legislation, including Federal Circuit Court and Superannuation legislation. Extensive commentary is included regarding superannuation as the property of separating couples. Regular bulletins keep practitioners up to date with new developments, legislative changes and recent case law.

Practice and Precedents — provides detailed guidance on the procedures involved in family law practice, and a comprehensive selection of precedents, clearly organised in a highly practical format covering a range of family law matters.
