Family Law and the ADF

Family Law Bar Association and the Military Law Bar Association
30Sep

The Australian Defence Force has approximately 60,000 permanent members, and approximately 21,000 members of the active reserve. Litigants who are members of the ADF can raise unique challenges for practitioners in the family law jurisdiction, such as issues related to postings and deployments, defined benefit pensions, and employment limitations when facing intervention orders.

In this presentation, the speakers will address some of the legal and practical challenges facing litigants and practitioners with respect to parenting applications, property settlement proceedings, and intervention orders when one or both of the parties are members of the ADF.
