I commend this edition to those who practice in this area of work; whether tasked with drafting a specific order or not, it is an invaluable resource to all

Mr Justice Peel, Judge-in-Charge of the Standard Orders

'Edward Hess has worked rapidly, and with herculean industry, to produce this enormously helpful updated third edition in which all the updated money orders are printed in full with its trademark ‘blue box’ comments.'

Mr Justice Peel, Judge-in-Charge of the Standard Orders

The Standard Family Orders Handbook has the tremendous benefit for the practitioner not only of presenting full versions of all the orders in published book form for the first time, but also the very great assistance of the author's editorial comments, in which he uses his considerable experience as a barrister and judge in the family justice system to identify when particular orders, or particular parts of orders, might sensibly be used.

Sir James Munby, Former President of the Family Division
