Parent Management Hearings Bill (Feb 2018)

Women’s Legal Services Australia has made a submission to the Senate Legal and Constitutional Affairs Committee in response to the Family Law Amendment (Parenting Management Hearings) Bill 2017. In the submission we call for Parent Management Hearings to be delayed and for implementation to be specifically considered by the Australian Law Reform Commission in their comprehensive review of the family law system before piloting such an untested model. WLSA believes the current Bill provides insufficient safeguards for people experiencing family violence.

The submission is available through this link on the Parliament of Australia website.
