Parenting Orders Enforcement and Compliance Survey


The Australian Institute of Family Studies (AIFS) has been commissioned by Australia’s National Research Organisation for Women’s Safety (ANROWS) to undertake research in relation to the compliance with and enforcement of family law parenting orders. The research will involve multiple studies, including a survey of parents and carers.

You are invited to participate in this survey if you are a parent or a carer who has had family law parenting orders made in the past 5 years. This research will help us to understand whether parents comply with parenting orders, how the enforcement process in the Family Law Act operates, and how well it works.
