Family Law Act

The Federal Government has designed the Family Law Act to regulate separating couples property, and time with their children.

The design of the Family Law Act is to encourage couples to try and agree on outcomes.

If couples can’t agree on outcomes about their property or children, then a court that has jurisdiction under the Family Law Act (such as the Federal Circuit Court of Australia or the Family Court) will decide what those outcomes will be.

Agreeing on outcomes means less money is spent on legal fees through the court process.

Having a court decide outcomes is expensive, and often disappointing for both parties as often neither party is granted what they asked for.
