Family Law

image of Family Law




From even this small sample of Commonwealth countries there is plenty of evidence that no one system of family law could be devised that would be appropriate to all its members. Though there are problems that they all share, and some, like the enforcement of maintenance payments, in which there has been much useful collaboration, each country has, in the field of family law, its own priorities and its own social goals. There is a shared concern about law reform in this area, but the problems addressed differ, as do the underlying reasons for seeking reform.
