This work provides an unrivalled source of advice and expertise, dealing with day-to-day problems, delivering practical solutions and is available as either a print or online
subscription. Written by a leading family law barrister, the author meets the requirements of the modern practitioner, offering detailed coverage of all major issues."It is the role of a looseleaf like this not only to state the law as it is but also to hazard a forecast as to where it may be heading. This thrusts on a writer the necessity of analysing recent decisions of the High Court and Court of Appeal, looking for any gems of insight they may contain as the harbinger of things to come."
