ISBN: 9-781-85959-873-3| Paperback | Published June 2020


There’s useful material on the financial remedies courts and their zone hubs; the usual puff for the IFLA arbitration scheme; sufficient on costs to scare you; and the other tables you have come to love. Without it, you’ll run the risk of looking or sounding (dependent on which form of remote has got you out of bed) a fool.

New Law Journal

‘At a Glance’ is the go to (book) that every family lawyer should have.It is always up to date, informative and provides you with the tables and schedules you will use on a regular basis together with an excellent index and reference to case law.

Absolutely first rate, the only book I would have if I was limited to one.

Marc Saunderson, Mills & Reeve

“A cornucopia of tables, facts and figures (and not a little law)…you pay less per page than in 1992”

Family Law
