Merging of the federal circuit court of Australia and Family Court

Although the exact legislative nature and effect of the proposed restructuring is unknown, the preliminary Government announcements have indicated the new FCFCA will have three distinct benefits to the parties: –

***Uniform rules and forms;
***A new appeal division for family law matters; and
***Single lineated court structure.
In regard to the first benefit, the implementation of uniform rules and forms drastically improves the current regime. In creating a single point entry to court proceedings, the parties will have their matter in one jurisdiction, allowing for persons to navigate the system more easily, and, ensure documents/forms are filed in accordance with one set of rules.
