Our vision is a connected family law system that minimises conflict and supports the best interests of children.
We seek to achieve this vision by encouraging professionals to work together, and providing opportunities to learn and share information.
We aim to:
- Establish and maintain professional relationships.
- Raise knowledge of the role and expertise of all professionals in the family law system.
- Provide training in a multi-disciplinary way to network members.
