Family law form and kit changes

The Family Court and Federal Circuit Court have advised of more form and kit changes from 31 October that have arisen as a result of the new Family Law (Notice of Child Abuse, Family Violence or Risk) Rules 2020 and the Federal Circuit Court (Notice of Child Abuse, Family Violence or Risk) Rules 2020.

The courts last week announced a new ‘Notice of child abuse, family violence or risk’ form which came into effect as the prescribed form at the end of last month.

The further changes are:

The Notice to Respondent(s) on page 10 was updated to include references to the new notice and additional details added about attending hearings.

Application for Consent Orders kit and form

The instruction pages of the kit were updated to reflect changes to the Notice of child abuse, family violence or risk.

The note on page 10 at Item 25 was changed to reflect the requirement to file the new notice when seeking parenting orders.

Instructions and note at Part B were amended to reflect change to the Notice of child abuse, family violence or risk.
