"THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO THE INTRICACIES OF FINANCIAL REMEDIES - A MUST FOR FAMILY LAW PRACTITIONERS"Read the full review
An appreciation by Phillip Taylore MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers
"There cannot be a family law practitioner anywhere, at least not in England and Wales -- who isn't grateful for the very existence of Roger Bird's 'Financial Remedies Handbook' co-authored by Andy King.
Since the first edition came out in 1998, this work of special reference has come to be held in the highest esteem for its erudition and staunch reliability within this difficult area of law: 'financial remedies' being the new name in divorce cases for what was hitherto called 'ancillary relief'.
The news is the this definitive guide is out now in a new tenth edition published recently by Jordan's Family Law imprint. This is definitely the go-to (or turn-to) practitioner's handbook which fortunately, considering the complexity of the subject, is written in an accessible, plain-English style. Containing clearly explained advice and comment on practice and procedure, the book's essentially practical approach is ideal for the hard-pressed family practitioner under pressure.
The authors, Roger Bird and Andy King, points out that the book is principally concerned with that class of remedies defined by still more - all succinctly explained in the introductory section of the book.
From there on, virtually every aspect pertaining to financial remedy is covered in detail, as a quick glance through the detailed table of contents will show. Key areas examined -- to cite only a few examples -- range from transfer of property and housing needs to insolvency, to rights of creditors to costs..."
