New chapters explore the importance of mediation, the complexities of money laundering and the recently introduced maintenance calculation for child support. Case law developments on ancillary relief awards are discussed in detail, notably LAMBERT 2003 and the chapter on welfare benefits takes account of the new child tax and working tax credits.
