Product description

Butterworths Hong Kong Family Law Handbook (Second Edition) is a detailed work of reference containing up to date materials of 12 Ordinances, including an extract of the Law Amendment and Reform (Consolidation) Ordinance (Cap 23), the full text of the Guardianship of Minors Ordinance (Cap 13), Separation and Maintenance Orders Ordinance (Cap 16), Marriage Reform Ordinance (Cap 178), Matrimonial Causes Ordinance (Cap 179), Marriage Ordinance (Cap 181), Married Persons Status (Cap 182), Legitimacy Ordinance (Cap 184), Domestic Violence Ordinance (Cap 189), Matrimonial Proceedings and Property Ordinance (Cap 192), Adoption Ordinance (Cap 290), Parent and Child Ordinance (Cap 429) and other relevant subsidiary legislations governing the family law and practice in Hong Kong.

This Handbook reproduces the text of the Ordinances as currently in force, together with details on all amendments and repeals.

This Handbook also provides section by section annotations to the Ordinances. These annotations, which have been adopted from The Annotated Ordinances of Hong Kong series, are succinct and easy to read. They encompass significant judicial decisions and rules of court, as well as notes ranging from definitions of words and phrases to discussions on practical aspects and contentious issues relating to particular sections and other authoritative materials. Furthermore, the annotations are fully cross-referenced, and the Handbook comes with comprehensive tables of cases and legislation referred to.

This series has been cited, with authority, in over one hundred court cases in the Hong Kong Court of First Instance, Court of Appeal, and Court of Final Appeal. This Handbook will be an invaluable source of reference for family law practitioners, mediation co-ordinators, judicial officers, academics and all others who are engaged or interested in the administration of family law in Hong Kong.
