Abstract

The recent Court of Appeal ruling in Joli v Joli[1] marks an important innovation in family law in Vanuatu, but it also offers the possibility of a new way of resolving legal problems, not just in the area of divorce but potentially in other legal areas as well. The case is the first Court of Appeal decision of its kind in Vanuatu to consider the interpretation of an area of family law where there is national legislation in place which does not entirely cover the same substantive subject area as the introduced legislation which was applicable before independence.
