Review into the family law system

Have your say by 7 May

Have you, or your friend or client, experienced family violence and been through the family law system?

The Australian Law Reform Commission is undertaking the most comprehensive review of the family law system since 1976 to ensure that it meets the needs of families and effectively addresses family violence and child abuse.

It wants to hear the experiences of family violence survivors who have been through the family law system.

We know there are serious safety concerns for women and children in how our family law system currently works. This is a vital opportunity for victims and survivors of family violence to provide direct input on what can be done to fix the family law system and put the safety of women and children first.

We strongly encourage anyone with relevant experience to tell their story – if your voices are not heard, there is a risk that other voices may dominate.

Tell your story

You can share your experience anonymously by 7 May at the “Tell Us Your Story” portal on the ALRC website
