Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Children and Adoption Act is being introduced to help deal with the number and complexity of cases brought to resolve contact issues in recent years. This essential book provides an invaluable guide to law and practice for family and children lawyers. Fully up-to-date, it offers an overview of the Act's provisions, including: new powers for family courts to undertake contact activities; the power to impose enforcement orders and award financial compensation from one party to another; the power of the court to appoint a CAFCASS officer to monitor compliance and report to the court in difficult cases. In addition, the book deals with the relevant aspects of human rights legislation and case law. It covers shared residence and its interaction with contact, parental rights and responsibilities for non-biological and same-sex parents, the Private Law Programme and immigration issues and international contact.
