The law relating to ancillary relief is necessarily flexible to enable the courts to achieve fairness in settlements. Depending on the case, the settlements can be more complex than the divorce or dissolution itself. "Ancillary Relief" provides an authoritative and straightforward guide to the law. Written by three ancillary relief specialists, the book provides a concise description of the appropriate black letter law but also deals with the practical, day-to-day issues that practitioners may encounter. The book includes coverage of recent cases relating to pre-nuptial agreements (Macleod and Radmacher v Granatino) and Barder appeals (Myerson v Myerson, and Walkden v Walkden). "Ancillary Relief": follows the course of a typical case, from meeting the client through to costs and tips on drafting; includes a separate chapter dealing with more complex issues such as substantial assets and short marriages, taking into account recent case law; and, is accompanied by a free CD-ROM comprising easily customised pro forma letters, forms, and precedents (including letters of instruction, an offer letter, an initial letter of advice, and checklists).The book takes into account recent developments in case law in respect, for example, of pre-nuptial and post-nuptial contracts and the ongoing uncertainty an interpretation of Section 25 Matrimonial Causes Act 1973.
