This important new text 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 that comprehensively covers all the main substantive areas of spousal family law, including marriage, divorce, financial support, property rights and domestic violence.
The rights of the statutory spouse in the jurisdictions of Barbados, Belize, Jamaica, and Trinidad and Tobago are examined, thus addressing, on a jurisdictional basis, an important area of spousal family that is seldom covered in English family law texts.
The book also covers the number and variations of divorce regimes applicable to the region – the matrimonial divorce offence model of Anguilla and Montserrat, the English five fact model of Trinidad and Tobago, Dominica, Grenada and St Vincent and the Grenadines, the hybrid model of Antigua and Barbuda and St Kitts and Nevis, and the no fault model of Jamaica and Barbados.
This book will prove an indispensable resource for law students and legal academics, as well as for family law practitioners across the English-speaking Caribbean. Other professionals, including sociologists and social workers, will also find the book useful and informative.
