The Family Court without a Lawyer is the book that all those who have to go to court to sort out issues over separation, money or children and do not have a lawyer to represent them need. This thoroughly revised 3rd edition has been fully updated to explain the new law and procedures in force from June 2017. It includes a substantially re-written chapter on domestic violence, a new section on special measures for vulnerable parties, more detailed information on international aspects of children and finance issues and a fully updated finance chapter to include maintenance, bankruptcy and social media evidence in relation to disclosure. The book includes advice such as: what to expect and where to go when at the court; what to think about when deciding to call a witness; how to challenge a judge's decision through an appeal;clear explanations of legal terms, jargon and concepts. All this practical advice and support makes The Family Court without a Lawyer much more than just a DIY divorce book. It is a practical tool to help unrepresented litigants in court and a reference to help them understand what happens in the Family Court, whether or not they have a lawyer. The Family Court without a Lawyer is also useful for those supporting someone through the court process; who have a lawyer but want to gain a better understanding of what is going on; or who want to consider the available options before going to court. The Family Court without a Lawyer is essential reading for Family Litigants in Person, Advice and support agencies involved in family breakdown and family law solicitors.

Review:

If you only buy one book, this is it. I owe everything to this book. Knowing nothing about court and full of nerves , I used only this book and Lucy's fantastic online videos. I'm just grateful someone has taken the time to create such a book, so Lucy Reed, if you read this then THANK YOU. --Amazon Verified Purchase

An absolute life saver! This book is astonishing. It contains virtually everything you need and there's an accompanying website for further information and downloads. The price of the book is negligible considering the cost of legal representation. Whilst I'd already turned a corner with my case, this book now means that I once again sleep properly! I'm now completely confident that I can successfully fight for what my daughter deserves - a warm, loving relationship with both of her parents. Lucy, I can't thank you enough. --Amazon Verified Purchase

I highly recommend you read this book if you are representing yourself. This book gave me the knowledge to run my case from a procedural perspective, as well as argue my points and represent my legal position succinctly in front of a judge. I highly highly recommend this book. --Amazon
