IMPORTANT NOTE: Information Sessions are no longer held at the Family Court.

Some Community Legal Centres present information sessions at their centres. You should make contact with your local centre or Family Relationship Centre to find out what services they provide.

What information is in the PowerPoints?

The PowerPoint presentations below contain information about:

  • What forms to file
  • What happens in Court
  • Stages of the Court process
  • Parenting and property settlement orders
  • The role of the Counselling and Consultancy Service
  • Using the services of a lawyer and the costs involved
  • Other mediation services available

If you do not have Microsoft Powerpoint on your computer, you can view the PDF version of the presentation. The PDF version may also be more suitable for printing.

Consider the Children - Video

This 12 minute video shows the impact on children when their parents separate.

The video is from a DVD produced for the Department of Family and Community Services for use by Family Courts and related agencies. The original DVD was funded by the Australian Government, the Attorney General's Department and the Department of Family and Community Services.
