Family Law in Australia book. by Henry Alan Finlay.
Family Law in Australia is an intricate web of common law and statute law that seeks to provide justice to all. It has undergone reform many times since its birth. It has undergone reform many times since its birth, and as it stands today reflects both international standards and domestic expectations in ensuring a fair outcome for all involved. The law recognises two main types of relationships in Australia. Marriage law is maintained by the Federal (Commonwealth) government as dictated within Section 51(xxi) of the Australian Constitution.
An extraordinary revolution in family relationships took place in Australia between 1857 and 1976. Marriage changed from an institution to be preserved at almost any cost to a union of equal partners, to be dissolved when it had irretrievably broken down. A millennium of legal, social and religious practice was swept away in less than 120 years. Gender relations were transformed. Change, however, was not straightforward or consistent.

William Henry Finlay (FRAS) (17 June 1849, in Liverpool – 7 December 1924, in Grahamstown, South Africa) was a South African astronomer. He was First Assistant at the Cape Observatory from 1873 to 1898 under Edward James Stone. He discovered the periodic comet 15P/Finlay. Earlier, he was one of the first to spot the "Great Comet of 1882" (C/1882 R1). The first telegraphic determinations of longitude along the western coast of Africa were made by Finlay and T. F. Pullen.
The anthology Law in Society explores how law shapes and is shaped by societies. The selections stem from a view of law as an integral part of the wider socio-political economy and one of its central institutions.
