Financial Remedies Practice is firmly established as the essential, specialist reference for all family financial remedy practitioners.
Cited and used in courts every day, this unique book combines in a single portable volume authoritative Commentary on financial remedies practice and procedure together with the full and up-to-date text of the relevant Family Procedure Rules and Practice Directions.
Crucially, and unlike other books on the topic, Financial Remedies Practice provides unrivalled coverage of myriad decisions and developments under the CPR that now mirror many of the key aspects of financial remedies practice, such as injunctions, relief from sanctions, costs and general case management.
This 8th edition has been revised and rewritten to incorporate developments from the last 12 months. Crucial changes include the emergence of two sets of Family Procedure (Amendment) Rules, allowing for the anticipated recalibration of the former ‘Shorter Procedure’ to the new ‘Fast Track’ and the President's announcement that the ‘Financial Remedies Courts’ scheme will be extended to other regions.
Key cases from the last 12 months, including De Gafforj v de Gafforj (Appeal: Hadkinson Order)  and Barton v Wright Hassall  are also analysed in the comprehensively rewritten Commentary.
The book is supplemented by an online version at familyprocedure.com which includes the full text of the Commentary linked to the primary sources cited so that you can easily find the relevant case and statutes direct from the Commentary.
This breadth of coverage and the expertise of the authors means that Financial Remedies Practice should be on the shelf in every family law library.
