Family Law Amendment Bill introduced into Parliament

On 25 November 2015 the Government introduced the Family Law Amendment (Financial Agreements and Other Measures) Bill 2015 into Parliament.

The amendments proposed in the Bill include measures designed to:

  • Address current uncertainties in relation to binding financial agreements;
  • enable State and Territory Courts making an interim family violence protection order to suspend or vary existing parenting orders pending further order; and
  • strengthen Australia's laws against international parental child abduction by introducing new offences relating to the wrongful retention of a child overseas.
The Bill is yet to be considered by Parliament.
