Federal Circuit Court and Family Law Court Merger

Hi Website

The Federal Circuit Court and Family Law Courts are set for a merger under the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia Bill 2018, currently before the Senate.
The bill unifies the administrative structure of the Family Court of Australia and the Federal Circuit Court of Australia, which will be known as the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia comprised of Division 1 (which will be a continuation of the Family Court) and Division 2 (which will be a continuation of the Federal Circuit Court).

For more information on what this may mean:

  • The case against the merger by the Law Council is here
  • The case for the merger as per the Sydney Morning Herald article from August 18, 2018 is here

We’ll keep you posted on administrative changes as they occur if the Bill passes through.
