FAMILY LAW

In the sixth edition of Family Law, Anthony Dickey QC continues to offer a comprehensive and eloquent outline of the substantive rules of family law in Australia. This well-respected text offers an indispensible reference tool for legal practitioners and students alike.

Substantial changes have been included in the sixth edition. In particular, a new chapter has been added on de facto relationships. This addresses amendments to the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth), including the new Part VIIIAB relating to financial agreements for de facto couples, and new and amended State and Territory Acts for relationships and civil partnerships. This edition further addresses various implications of family law for de facto partners, such as proceedings in financial causes, de facto maintenance provisions, and property settlement proceedings.

The sixth edition also includes discussion of developments in administrative assessment of child support, covering topics such as the duty of parents, eligibility, formalities and procedures; and the jurisdiction of the Federal Circuit Court of Australia (formerly the Federal Magistrates Court).
