Family Law Act
A new Family Law Act will come fully into force on March 18, 2013. The Act places the safety and best interests of the child first when families are going through separation and divorce. It also clarifies parental responsibilities and the division of assets if relationships break down, addresses family violence and encourages families to resolve their disputes out of court. The new act replaces the Family Relations Act.
