We're looking for dads who have been involved in family law proceedings.
The Commonwealth Government is conducting an inquiry into Family Law in Australia. More details about the inquiry and information about how to submit can be found HERE.
Men’s Resources Tasmania plans to write a submission to this inquiry. MRT is seeking some general feedback on people’s experiences of the family law system. We aim to provide evidence to inform the inquiry of the some of the experiences of some men.
We understand some of these issues are complex and can sometimes bring on strong feelings of anger and resentment. As an unfunded, volunteer run organisation we are not able to offer support for people dealing with these issues, or to advocate on behalf of individuals. If you wish to share a story, please do at the end. While we may reference all or part of a story to inform our submission, we cannot guarantee that your story will be included.
This survey is aimed at fathers who have had involvement of the family law system. However, if you are a stepfather, grandfather or male carer of children and have been involved in family law disputes, you are also welcome to contribute your experiences.
Submissions to the Parliamentary Inquiry are due by 18 December. Our submission will, therefore be based on survey results received by close of business Friday 13 December.
If you have questions about the inquiry, you can contact the committee secretariat.
