Preserving Justice for the Vulnerable

Van Badham makes a convincing argument as to why the Family Court of Australia should not be merged into another court. The need for a specialist court, with specialist judges, to assist vulnerable people in the most vulnerable of times cannot and must not be overlooked in the search for “efficiency” or, worse, political support or advantage.

The Family Court of Australia needs to remain one of the Courts of the Commonwealth of Australia, and it needs to be properly funded and resourced to fulfil its function within the Commonwealth of Australia.
