Submissions for this consultation closed on Friday, 14 January 2011

The Australian Government has approved the release of an exposure draft of the Family Law Amendment (Family Violence) Bill 2010 in order to facilitate further public consultation on proposed family law reforms. 

The Bill focuses on prioritising the safety of children whose rights and interests are considered under the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth). This Bill would amend the Family Law Act to strengthen the role of family courts, advisers and parents in preventing harm to children while continuing to support the concept of shared parental responsibility and shared care where these are safe.
