Safety First in Family Law

In 2016, in the lead up to the national election, Women's Legal Services Australia (a national network of that WLSV is part of) is calling on all major political parties to prioritise the safety of women and children in family law.

The real and practical solutions to addressing the systemic and cultural gaps in family law are set out in WLSA's policy platform Five Steps to Safety in Family Law.

Together with over 90 organisations, WLSA has written an open letter to the leaders of all the major political parties to commit to real change in family law today.

Read Women's Legal Services Australia's media release - WLSA launches 5 step plan to keep women and children safe in family law.

If you'd like to get involved and take action, here's a short guide on how to write to the Prime Minister, Leader of the Opposition and Leader of the Greens.
