ABOUT THIS BOOK
This reader-friendly narrative pinpoints several chilling pitfalls in the legal system for family separation and divorce. It is based on a real life event in Australia, and reveals what can happen wherever the no-fault system of Family Law operates. Facts are used to provide a rich sense of the law in action and to question faith in no-fault judicial systems, especially when hypergamy and Sociopathy are present. This book lays bare how personality disorders interact with lax judicial systems for shockingly unfair outcomes.
The narrative exposes how unethical lawyers and partners can abuse loose legal processes inherent in the no-fault basis to heap suffering on already traumatised opponents. Also explained is why casual approaches and rule-of-thumb decisions can deliver a justice unworthy of the name. Life-changing outcomes are controlled by defective judicial processes – making much-needed fairness a condition in short supply at a time of major life crisis. Cutting through the clutter exposes chronic weaknesses in the no-fault system, and brings to light the reforms needed for real justice.
The behavioural traits identified in this book make the narrative an abundant source of information for a case study on Sociopathy and related personality disorders.
Packed with deep insight, this book is a must-read for every citizen with a social conscience. It would be of particular value to those wanting to be alerted to lurking perils in no-fault Family Court processes. The information would also be useful to relevant legal practitioners, teachers and students of law and psychology looking for case material, politicians and bureaucrats wanting an original angle, and social reformers searching for solutions.
The author is a social scientist, former chair professor and professional analyst. This is an award-winning author with five books on different subjects and many journal articles, whose wealth of knowledge and experience brings vivid perspective to the poignant analysis that lucidly unravels for shock and amazement.
