Australian Family Law in Context provides a contemporary and innovative examination of family law materials from a range of disciplines and a diversity of perspectives. All viewpoints that may be found in the legal literature on family law are represented in the book through extracts, notes and questions. The sixth edition has been comprehensively revised and updated to take account of the latest developments in Australian family law. It includes issues about same-sex marriage, changes to the family courts, the implications of the High Court’s decision in Stanford v Stanford for property division, and debates about the definition of family violence. The new edition also has the latest case law on the requirements for validity of binding financial agreements and on when an intimate partnership satisfies the definition of a de facto relationship, as well as new developments concerning parenting after separation.
