There is a myriad of organisations and resources that can be helpful to people during the challenging time of separation, divorce and co-parenting.  The books below are just a small selection recommended by our Head of Family Law Division, Stephen Brown.

"It was hard to limit this list to just twelve books, however each of them has helped many of my clients over the years and I hope might help you as well.  If you would like a reading recommendation on a specific family law area/topic, please don't hesitate to email me " Stephen Brown
