New Family Law Handbook


A new edition of the Family Law in Ireland Code of Practice was launched on 14 September 2017 by the Law Society of Ireland.

A copy of the code of practice for Family Law in Ireland is available for download form the website of the Law Society of Ireland.
Download the document here.

The Code of Practice has been reviewed in light of recent growth in the family law sector and significant changes to the law, including the children’s rights referendum and the enactment of the Children and Family Relationships Act 2015.

The handbook covers issues including alternative dispute resolution, relationships with both clients and other professionals, supporting children and anti-money laundering obligations.
