Domestic Abuse: Law & Practice

CURRENCY: Seventh Edition, August 2018

Domestic Abuse: Law and Practice: is a comprehensive practitioner’s guide to dealing with cases involving personal protection, harassment and domestic abuse.

This new edition has been thoroughly revised. It takes account of recent case-law and provides analysis of all the important procedural developments, including:

• the revised PD12J (Child Arrangements and Contact Order: Domestic Abuse and Harm)
• future developments in the law relating to domestic abuse; and
• the increasing recognition of the pernicious effect which abuse can have on children.

The text is supplemented by appendices containing key forms, precedents and legislation.

Domestic Abuse: Law and Practice is an invaluable practical guide written for solicitors, barristers, citizen advice bureaux and women’s rights groups.
