Future governance options for federal family law courts in Australia: striking the right balance

24 Nov 2008
Description

This report proposes a single administrative and corporate service structure for the total federal family law system designed to meet the requirements of litigants and their families. It recommends that existing Federal Magistrates be offered commissions to the General Division of the Family Court which would become a lower tier of that Court. Existing Family Court Judges would constitute an upper tier of the Family Court.

A consultation paper, Improving Access to Justice – A Better Framework for Federal Courts, is also available.
