Description
This fifth edition of Family Law - I is a comprehensive study of all important aspects of family law including marriage and divorce, maintenance and division of matrimonial property, guardianship and child custody, as well as adoption, as developed by the Supreme Court and various High Courts. The author has discussed major recent judgments of the Supreme Court on such contemporary concerns as the status of live-in relationships, and of rights of the women, and of the children born of such relationships. The book also provides insights into contemporary matrimonial issues that have emerged as a result of the development of new perceptions of rights and duties, as well as alternative methods for matrimonial dispute settlement. Further, latest statutory provisions, as well as judicial pronouncements have been analysed. This book is an essential reading for law students, professors teaching in law schools, students and scholars of gender studies and sociology; it is a must have for law and social science libraries.
