The role of the state in family disputes will be considered during a review of the Family Court.

The government announced today that a full review of the court would be undertaken.

While the costs of the Family Court will be looked at, Justice Minister Simon Power maintains the review is not just a money saving exercise.

He said it was about looking at whether time and resources are being appropriately used.
Justice Minister Simon Power said
The review will look at how a piecemeal approach to family law reform has impacted on the efficiency of the court, as well as ensuring it is sustainable, cost effective, and responsive to the needs to those who use it and the taxpayers who pay for it.

I want to make it clear that where women, children, and other vulnerable people have been harmed, or are at risk of being harmed, the State will provide legal means to secure protection.
Power said there will be an opportunity for the public to take part in the Family Court review, when a public consultation paper is released in September this year.
