Coming Soon on Kindle - 'Applying for Shared Residence'

In edit/design/formatting stage at present, and content all but complete. An 80,000 word guide to shared residence, making applications to court and the legal process. We have doubled the content of our existing e-book, and will be significantly reducing the price to make it more accessible for adults on benefits. Further content is added to assist litigants-in-person (parents unable to afford a solicitor, who will not qualify for legal aid from April 2013).

This new guide will be in a kindle format from Amazon, and is intended for parents (both represented and litigants-in-person) making applications to the family courts in England and Wales. 

Why this format?
Kindle reading software is free of charge, and can be downloaded to PCs, Macs, smartphones and tablet readers as well as kindle reading devices. Kindle has the added advantage of a text to speech feature, increasing accessibility for the visually impaired and adults with specific learning difficulties.
