New family law handbook reflects legal and societal change in Ireland

Leading family law practitioners from across Ireland gathered at Blackhall Place yesterday for the launch of the Law Society of Ireland’s new handbook, Family Law in Ireland – Code of Practice.

Significant new standards have been introduced in the new code of practice. Couples who choose to proceed to court must first sign a certificate verifying that they have been fully advised on the alternatives to litigation, the handbook also seeks to put the voice of the child at the centre of proceedings and aims to guard against “strange happenings in closed family court”.
