The Family Law Book was published in Melbourne in 2009 as an online and loose-leaf service in one volume designed to give family lawyers quick and easy access to all family law, procedure, forms and precedents.
 
As part of the service a LEGAL HELP LINE was introduced, giving subscribers and their staff access to our experts in family law who reply to any legal question within 24 hours (by email).
 
In 2011 a digital version of our loose-leaf service was published as an E-Book, being a paperless version of our complete service.
 
Loose-leaf subscribers also get the E-Book as part of their package.
 
A free APP has been created for tablet users to access our services when out of the office.
 
The Loose-leaf and E-Book are updated quarterly. We also post monthly online summaries of Latest Notable Cases (also available as a separate package) and immediate notice of any court or other practice news or changes.
