Who can apply to the Court?

If a resolution by negotiation, mediation or family dispute resolution (FDR) is not possible or has not achieved an outcome, then the Family Court or Federal Circuit Court is available to assist you. It is compulsory in most parenting matters that FDR occurs before any application is made to the Court. It is not only the parents of a child that may apply to the Court. The jurisdiction of the Court is open to applications from:-

  • either or both of a child’s parents;
  • a child;
  • a grandparent of a child;
  • any other person concerned with the care, welfare and development of a child.
