Preface

India is a land of diversities with people belonging to various communities, castes and religions. Whereas procedural laws are uniform for all, but in matters of personal relationships like marriage, divorce, adoption and succession, there are different laws governing people belonging to different religions. Thus, Hindus, Christians, Muslims and Parsis, all have their own personal laws providing various remedies and reliefs for problems in their family/personal relationships. Also, times have, and are, fast changing and along with that awareness and attitudes as well. Going to a court of law for matrimonial or any other relief in a family matter is no longer viewed as a matter of disgrace, stigma or insult. The result is that litigation in this area is enormous. Family laws form an important component of course-content in law teaching. Statutory law and judicial pronouncements go together in the study of law. Hence any study or book on case law is an indispensable aid to a student of law. The present book, "Cases and Materials on Family Law" is a humble endeavour in this direction. It covers over 250 cases on marriage, divorce, maintenance, adoption and succession amongst Hindus, Christians, Parsis and Muslims, decided by the Supreme Court and the various High Courts. The book is sure to be of immense help not only to a student of family law but also to professionals in this field. Apart from that, it would also be of interest to a common reader curious to know of the law and judicial attitudes, because family law and relationship is an area which deeply impacts every person.
