This is the second edition of the Family Law Council's stand-alone statistical report on various aspects of the Australian family law system.

It is important to note that this Snapshot does not purport to be a comprehensive collection or analysis of statistics in this area.

The Family Law Council established a Reference Group to oversee the preparation of this Snapshot. The Reference Group comprised Ms Jennifer Cooke from the Family Court of Australia and Mr Peter May from the Federal Magistrates Court, both Observers on the Council; and Ms Susan Holmes, a Member of the Council. The Council is also grateful for the assistance provided by Mr Bruce Smyth and Ms Lixia Qu from the Australian Institute of Family Studies.
