The "Which?" Guide to Divorce
By Imogen Clout
Any couple contemplating divorce needs to be aware of the legal procedures involved and the financial implications of the decisions made at this stressful time. This guide explains the process in simple, straightforward terms so that they can discuss the issues before embarking upon it. This new edition of "The Which? Guide to Divorce" cover all the effects of the Family Law Act 1996, including those yet to be implemented. As well as explaining recent changes to legal aid and the proposed changes to Child Support, pensions and the implications of the Human Rights Act 1988, it steers couples through the maze of legal and financial issues surrounding divorce by providing, in easy-to-understand language: a step-by-step guide to the stages of the divorce process; information on court costs; tips on how to find the right solicitor; and a glossary and list of useful addresses. The book also discusses the role of mediation and the way in which the Family Law Act deals with domestic violence and matrimonial home rights. The differences in divorce law and practice in Scotland and Northern Ireland are explored in separate chapters. In addition, the book points out the differences in the law for unmarried couples.
