PRINCIPLES OF FAMILY LAW:UK
Cretney s Principles of Family Law has been the leading textbook on family law for over 30 years, providing a stimulating exposition of legal principles combined with an authoritative discussion of policy and practice issues and relevant empirical research. The new eighth edition covers key legislative developments including those resulting from Civil Partnership Act 2004, Gender Recognition Act 2004, Domestic Violence, Crimes and Victims Act 2004, Children Act 2004 and the Forced Marriage (Civil Protection) Act 2007. In addition, the work examines the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill; the Child Maintenance and Other Payments Bill and the Children and Young Persons Bill and the impact these will have on family law once enacted. Key policy developments are discussed including the Law Commission s work on cohabitation law reform; Civil Partnerships; Welfare to Work; Care Matters; and the Public Law Outline. All key case law is taken into account, including Ghaidan v Godin-Mendoza, Miller v Miller, McFarlane v McFarlane, Charman v Charman, Oxley v Hiscock, Stack v Dowden, Re G, and Wilkinson v Kitzinger.
