Submission to Australian Law Reform Commission – Review of the Family Law System

Review of the Family Law System – 7 May 2018

PCLC welcomes the opportunity to contribute to the Australian Law Reform Commission (ALRC) Family Law Review. This Review is especially important to PCLC because approximately 50% of its case work is family law and family violence related.  Whilst this is the most comprehensive review of the family law system since the commencement of the Family Law Act in 1976 (Cth), it is PCLC’s intention to address only those issues of specific significance to the community legal sector and PCLC’s valued clients.  It is hoped that PCLC’s submission, and the experiences of our clients on which many of our recommendations are based, find voice in the family law system reforms we propose.
