Upcoming Events

Pathways Forum Registrations now open: 2024 Annual Family Law Pathways Network Forum: Family and Domestic Violence – Finding Pathways for Change on Thursday 6 June 2024.  

In this country, more than one women dies per week and a child per fortnight from family and domestic violence.  These statistics are worse in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and those with cultural and linguistic diversity.  Not surprisingly, the statistics are demonstrated in the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia lodgings where more than 80% of applications before the court have family and domestic violence marked by the parties as an issue.  Finally, this issue has also been tragically demonstrated in South Australia in recent months.

At its annual forum on 6 June, the Pathways Family Law Network of South Australia will explore these matters with a view to change and in the following contexts:

  • judicial perspective;
  • department of child protection;
  • women’s courses;
  • men’s behaviour change groups;
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people;
  • dispute resolution models;
  • cultural diversity;
  • property distribution.
