Independent Review of the Family Law Pathways Networks

Family relationship services
Publication date

Family Law Pathways Networks (FLPNs) are made up of professionals in the family law system. They share information, create networking opportunities, and develop and maintain cross-sector training in local areas around Australia.

The purpose of this independent review of the FLPNs conducted in 2012, was to produce an overall picture of the operation of the networks, and to assess the value of the networks against the objectives and the value to family law system professionals. The terms of reference included other matters specific to the categorisation of the networks, the funding term, use of technology, and potential other roles for FLPNs to contribute to family law system development.
