AWAVA has made a submission to the Joint Select Committee on Australia’s Family Law System.
AWAVA’s position has always been consistent that the redevelopment of the family law system should be underpinned by the following principles:
1. Safety for victims/survivors and their children;
2. Accessibility of the system;
3. Fairness and responsiveness; and
4. Recognition of diversity.
We strongly believe that the principle of safety and wellbeing for victims/survivors of violence and children should be a paramount consideration in any reforms to the family law system.
