In Irish family law, Appropriate Dispute Resolution (ADR) is a huge growth area which is being promoted both by government, at a policy level and by statute, and also by knowledgeable clients. The economic climate has facilitated a shift toward cost saving and non-court resolution options, such as collaborative practice and mediation. Ireland's draft Mediation Bill 2012 provides that solicitors and barristers have a duty to provide information and advice on mediation. This book is the first on this topic devoted to the requirements of the Irish market and assists family lawyers to embrace ADR as an integral part of their practice and educate family law clients on the workings and advantages of ADR. Contents include: the development of family law in Ireland since the introduction of judicial separation and divorce * the adversarial nature of the family court system * the lack of resources within the current system * mediation * collaborative practice * neutral experts in family ADR * finality within reason

Globalisation, and the vast migrations of capital and labour that have accompanied it in recent decades, has transformed family law in once unimaginable ways. Families have been torn apart and new families have been created. Borders have become more porous, allowing adoptees and mail order brides to join new families and women fleeing domestic violence to escape from old ones. People of different nationalities marry, have children, and divorce, not necessarily in that order. They file suits in their respective home states or third states, demanding support, custody, and property. Otherwise law-abiding parents risk jail in desperate efforts to abduct their own children from foreign ex-spouses. The aim of this Handbook is to provide scholars, postgraduate students, judges, and practioners with a broad but authoritative review of current research in the area of International Family Law. The contributors reflect on a range of jurisdictions and legal traditions and their approaches vary. Each chapter has a distinct subject matter and was written by an author who was invited because of his or her expertise on that subject. This volume provides a valuable contribution to emerging understandings of the subject.

Pensions - A Handbook for the Family Law Practitioner is a practical guide dealing with pensions in the context of family law in Ireland. There is no other book in the Irish market dealing directly with this topic. Pensions are one of the most valuable marital assets and cause problems every day for family law practitioners. As a result, many barristers and solicitors employ a pension expert to advise on drafting pension adjustment orders, which leads to delays in cases and increased legal costs. The book provides a guide to practitioners through the minefield of pension adjustment orders and other pension aspects of family law. A highly practical book, it contains commentary, legislation, precedents and forms. It includes coverage of the Family Law Act 1995 and the Family Law (Divorce) Act 1996 and regulations. Table of Contents: The legislation and regulations governing Pension Adjustment Orders (PAOs); The types of pensions; The types of Order a Court can make; The Effects of the Court Orders; Restructuring pension funds and its effect on PAOs; Foreign pensions and their problems; Proposed input from a pension expert and the Ombudsman; Problems with the legislation and need for reform; Model PAO drafts.
