As more and more families fragment, reform, move abroad, foster or make use of assisted reproduction, keeping track on the law and people’s rights can be hard. Practitioners are increasingly facing situations where the laws on step-parenting, grandparenting, adoption, embryology, or same-sex parenting are involved, but the law is scattered around and sometimes hard to apply to particular circumstances. In this collection of essays, specialist practitioners provide a concise history of how the law in each area has evolved, what it is trying to achieve, and what that means for clients. A key emphasis of the book is not just family breakdown, but howfamilies and family networks can be strengthened. Chapters cover:

  • Cohabitation Step-parents
  • Grandparents Assisted Reproduction
  • Same-sex parents Adoption and fostering
  • Finances of subsequent relationships
  • International families and the global child

This is an invaluable guide to difficult areas where quick answersare often essential.
