    Family Law Practice and Procedure in Hong Kong is a student textbook covering all causes of action that typically arise in the family law context. It is aimed at LLB family law students, who will find that the book covers all the main areas of general family law, but it is also written with a practical bias and addresses all the issues students will need to understand in order to master the subject at PCLL level, founding skills which they can later take into practice in family law as a solicitor or barrister.

    The book offers essential, practical guidance on approaching all current issues in family law, including marriage and divorce, child custody and access disputes, ancillary relief and financial dispute resolution, child abduction and adoption under the Hague conventions as well as domestic violence, injunctions, appeals and family law remedies generally. The text is fully updated to include the civil justice reforms as they apply to matrimonial practice in Hong Kong.
