Acts of Parliament

This is the legislation that governs Family Law

The Children's Act 1989

This is the act that "governs all". There are subsequent acts that are passed, but they tend to be incorporated into this act i.e. they are changes to this act.

As it is important to understand the act in respect of context, any act that amends this act is best read in the context of how it has changed the Act i.e. this is the version you need!!
