The current court structure and overlapping family law jurisdiction between the Family Court and FCC leads to significant inefficiencies, confusion, delays, additional costs and unequal experiences for many families. This results in poor outcomes for some children and families. The reforms will address these inefficiencies.
The purpose of this review was to provide high level financial analysis of savings and implementation costs associated with four federal court reform areas as defined by the Attorney-General’s Department.
This Review is one component of the Australian Government’s commitment to family law system reform to support the contemporary needs of Australian families and to relieve the financial pressures on the family law courts.
Review of the performance and funding of the Federal Court of Australia, the Family Court of Australia and the Federal Circuit Court of Australia
The Federal Court of Australia (FCA), the Family Court of Australia (FCoA) and the Federal Circuit Court of Australia (FCC) (collectively, ‘the Courts’) play a critical role in the national administration of justice for Australia’s states and territories.
The administration of the delivery by the Family Court and Federal Magistrates Court of family law services could be operating more efficiently and services to litigants could be improved. Consultations and submissions to the Review all expressed this view.
