QCOSS made a submission to the Australian Law Reform Commission (ALRC) review of the Family Law System. In this submission, QCOSS commends the ALRC on the many proposals aimed at reducing harm and strengthening protections for women who are affected by domestic and family violence. However, QCOSS is concerned the Family Law System may continue to contribute to the devastating impacts of domestic and family violence on women who seperate from their partners. This impacts on vulnerable women’s own, and their children’s, wellbeing.
