Relief within reach for broken families

December 06, 2017

George Brandis has introduced a program to provide broken families with dispute resolution hearings.

Broken families will be given access to quick and informal hearings to determine parenting arrangements under a proposed new pilot program.

Attorney-General George Brandis paved the way for the free hearings, which would deliver binding results, through legislation tabled in parliament on Wednesday.

"Traditionally the onus is on the opposing sides to assemble and argue their cases, but these hearings will undertake inquiries and gather information to deliver informed and safe outcomes for families," Senator Brandis said.
