Family Law System Submission
Rainbow Families has been invited to contribute to the Federal Parliament's Joint Select Committee on Australia's Family Law System. You might recall that there was a comprehensive Australian Law Reform Commission review of the Family Law system in 2018 which resulted in detailed recommendations. The Federal Government has not responded to those recommendations, instead agreeing to Pauline Hanson's demand for a further review of the family law system. You may have heard media about Senator Hanson's personal views about the roles of men and women in family law proceedings. In particular she has sought to minimise the impact of domestic and family violence.
