The second of three volumes on the subject, this book is written to meet the course requirements of Family Law which is a compulsory subject for LLB students. Providing an in-depth analysis of family laws, this book explores the overlaps and contradictions in these laws. The ground levellitigation practices are interwoven with the framework of statutory provisions, which in turn provide an entry point into the rights discourses and social movements. The book discusses cases, Acts, and amendments related to marriage and its dissolution, matrimonial obligations, and custody and guardianship of children. The work unravels legal complexities and weaves women's realities into legal theories. It positions women's claims within the Constitution tohighlight the lacunae in laws and to analyse their effectiveness at the ground level. It further discusses family courts and the strategies which need to be adopted to make the present laws work effectively.
