Make family law safe: Joint Statement

Over 100 peak bodies and practitioners working to prevent and respond to violence against women and children, including our member organisations Good Samaritan Inn and Good Shepherd Australia New Zealand, have released a joint statement rejecting the legitimacy of the Federal Government’s new Family Law Inquiry.
"This Inquiry is not only unnecessary, it is dangerous. We know what is needed to improve the system. The decision to further delay implementing these urgently needed changes is absolutely unconscionable. Women’s and children’s lives are on the line. They cannot wait another year for action", the statement reads.
