Volunteer Profile Justine
Justine is a proud mum of the wonderful eight year old Remy, who she coparents with Remy’s other mum.
Justine became involved with Rainbow Families through the Monthly Catch Up in the Inner West where she found the wonderful community of Rainbow Families. Being a Marrickville local the monthly Sydney Park catch up is an easy regular way to connect with other LGBTIQ parents and their children.
Justine has a background in family law and legal policy and currently works as a family dispute resolution practitioner.
Using her background, Justine is currently developing a resource for separated families in the LBGTIQ community. She is looking forward to hearing about the community's experiences as this will be central to the resource. The aim is to provide practical guidance that responds to the particular needs of the LGBITQ community as mainstream resources don't always recognise these.
Justine also consulted with the community about the experience of navigating the family law system, before writing a submission to the inquiry into the family law system on behalf of Rainbow Families.
