ALRC Review

WLSV welcomes the review and is participating in the review through the consultation and submissions process.

WLSV’s priorities for reform of the family law system include:

  • Reforms aimed at the early identification of family violence and early decision judicial making in the family law system;
  • Access to justice through the use of interpreters;
  • Expansion of Legally Assisted Dispute Resolution;
  • Removal of the Legislative Presumption of Equal Shared Parental Responsibility;
  • Implementation of WLSV’s Small Claims, Large Battles report recommendations;
  • Reforms aimed at addressing systems abuse which prevents perpetrators from using the system to commit further abuse.
