Butterworths Scottish Family Law Service provides a single source of reference on all aspects of the law as it affects married and unmarried partners and their children. It concentrates on those matters of real and constant concern to the practitioner - the consequences of marriage breakdown, such as care of children, distribution of assets and associated problems with taxation, and social security.
Its coverage of the law relating to children rivals that of specialist works, and includes substantial sections on, inter alia, adoption, children's hearings and child support. The law and practice of family law continue to develop at such a pace that only an efficient looseleaf work can succeed in keeping practitioners up-to-date.
It also allows for sections to be expanded and for new sections to be added as necessitated by changes in the law. Butterworths Scottish Family Law Service is updated four times a year, enabling subscribers to keep abreast of all developments in the law.
One looseleaf volume, four service issues per year (invoiced separately on publication).
