Product Description

The long-awaited third edition provides a clear, incisive and up-to-date analysis of the main developments. Apart from a comprehensive update of the law across all chapters, the most significant enhancements include a new chapter on Litigation in Family Justice Court, and a complete re-write of chapters pertaining to the Division of Matrimonial Assets. The Family Justice Act No. 27 of 2014 formally embraced the, by now, universally accepted “family justice system”. The Act re-organised the courts hearing “family proceedings”. It created a complete hierarchy of Family Justice Courts – starting with the Family Court (that was established in 1995), with appeals as of right to newly created Family Division of the High Court, with further appeals only with leave to the Court of Appeal. With this, new Family Justice Practice Directions and Family Justice Rules were issued. To discuss Singapore’s version of the family justice system and the procedural developments to support it, a new Chapter 19 “Litigation in Family Justice Courts”.
