Family Violence Act and Analysis is a practical, user friendly text containing key family violence legislation, commentary and guidance. It has been developed to meet the needs of busy practitioners, members of the judiciary, government agencies and other parties navigating the Family Violence Act 2018 as a one stop research and practice tool.

Family Violence Act and Analysis begins with a practical introduction to family violence law, with an introduction to the context of family violence in New Zealand and an overview of key changes made by the new Act, practice and procedure, and a second section of the introduction on protecting children from violence. The book contains the Family Violence Act 2018 in full text with section based analysis, comparative tables between the old and new legislation, checklists and the Family Court Practice Note pertaining to Domestic Violence as additional resources. The section-based commentary is derived from Brookers Family Law (online loose-leaf service).
