Family Law-I deals with laws governing marriage and matrimonial remedies of nullity, restitution of conjugal rights, judicial separation and divorce, and ancillary remedies of maintenance, legitimacy, adoption, custody and guardianship of children and distribution of spousal property. Matrimonial laws vary with the religion, region and tribe of the parties in India and co-exist with secular laws covering virtually every aspect of domestic relations.

- Also examines the secular legislations governing domestic relations in the area of adoption, custody and guardianship of children and maintenance
- Includes important case law and legislative changes
