Where Child Protection meets Family Law


When child protection proceedings in the Children's Court end with a promise that a parent will commence proceedings for parenting orders in the Family and Federal Circuit Court of Australia - what comes next? Is further litigation really in the best interests of the child? What exactly does making an application in the FCFCOA involve? And what role will the child protection history play in the Family Law Act proceedings?

Join our experienced panel for an informative discussion of the interplay between the jurisdictions of the Children's Court and the FCFCOA (including recent legislative amendments) and expert tips to assist clients navigating the transition.
