Family Law of Husband, Wife and Cohabitant in the Commonwealth Caribbean PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Family Law of Husband, Wife and Cohabitant in the Commonwealth Caribbean free pdf Family Law of Husband, Wife and Cohabitant in the Commonwealth Caribbean is the product of several years of research of the family law of over ten Commonwealth Caribbean jurisdictions. It is the first and only legal text which comprehensively covers all the main substantive areas of spousal family law, including marriage, divorce, financial support, property rights, domestic violence for the de jure (marital) spouse in those jurisdictions. The rights of the statutory spouse in the jurisdictions of Barbados, Belize Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago will be examined addressing, on a jurisdictional basis, an important area of spousal family, not covered in any English family law texts. No other book covers the number and variations of divorce regimes applicable to the region-from the matrimonial divorce offence model of Anguilla and Montserrat, to the English five fact model of Trinidad and Tobago, Dominica, Grenada and St Vincent and the Grenadines, to the hybrid model of Antigua and Barbuda and St Kitts and Nevis to the no fault model of Jamaica and Barbados. While the book is certainly geared to be an indispensable resource tool for the law student, paralegal and family law practitioner in the English-speaking Caribbean, other professionals including sociologists and social workers and even the layman will find the book useful and informative.
