Family 2 - Financial Aspects of Family Law LAW682

Introduction

Gives students an understanding of the financial aspects of family law. Topics covered include the areas of maintenance, property division, financial agreements and child support. The position of both married and non-married couples will be considered. Students will be encouraged to examine the underlying policy issues in this area, particularly with regard to the approach of the law to parties in non-formalised relationships. Students will also be required to consider the application of the law in its wider socio-economic context, particularly in relation to the unequal economic effects of family breakdown upon men and women. The changing nature of the law in this area will be emphasised.
