Guiding those working with victims and perpetrators of domestic abuse, through the frameworks within which the courts operate and how they can be navigated. The first book of its kind, written by eminent practitioners from both the family and criminal arenas, combining best practice from the criminal courts to assist the family law practitioner and identify common mistakes made by practitioners and the family justice system, offering solutions and promoting good practice.

Each chapter has a short summary followed by a clear application of the law, along with flow-charts enabling this wide-ranging area of law to be distilled into straight-forward principles.
