Lander & Rogers proud to contribute to the Australian Law Reform Commission review of the family law system

Lander & Rogers is pleased to have been able to contribute to the Australian Law Reform Commission (ALRC) review of the family law system, which is being undertaken at the direction of the Commonwealth Government.

Detailed written submissions have been prepared by our Family & Relationship Law group, based on the collective professional experience of our lawyers in both Melbourne and Sydney. Those submissions focus on a wide range of important legal issues facing parties to a relationship breakdown, including the following:

  • Legislative reform in respect of property division and parenting disputes.
  • Proposals in respect of reducing court delays and managing legal costs.
  • Alternative dispute resolution models and streamlining of court processes in less-complex matters.
  • Issues of specific concern to the LGBTIQ community.

Under the Terms of Reference, the ALRC is requested to report to the Attorney-General by 31 March 2019. We look forward to contributing to the ongoing discussion concerning what reforms might be made to a complex legal system which affects a wide range of people in our community.

A copy of the Lander & Rogers written submissions to the ALRC can be found here.
