About

Put Safety First in Family Law is Women’s Legal Services Australia‘s campaign calling for the Australian Government to reform family law to make sure it works to keep women and children safe. The campaign is endorsed by the National Association of Community Legal Centres.

Women’s Legal Services Australia is a national network of community legal centres specialising in women’s legal issues. Member centres regularly provide advice, information, casework and legal education to women on family law and family violence matters. We have a particular interest in ensuring that women experiencing domestic violence are adequately protected in the family law process, and that disadvantaged women, such as those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women, women with disabilities and rural women are not further disadvantaged by the process.
