Provides a clear exposition of the three different regimes for family costs (fees, costs and fixed costs) as well coverage of arbitration costs, public funding, wasted costs or any other costs issues that can arise in family proceedings.
In its concise but comprehensive approach, it provides answers to questions that arise on a regular basis with helpful precedents. The early chapters address the limited scope for orders for costs between parties, while the later chapters give the work weight, breath and value through coverage of cost allowances, wasted costs, court fees, indemnity costs, enforcement of costs etc. As Lord Wilson in the Foreword to the first edition stated: 'This is a magisterial work' and he commends it for use by family judges.
It is fully updated to take account of key cases, legislation and developments in practice since publication of the first edition (9781784731403 published by Jordan Publishing)
