More and more, family law issues are impacting upon Schools. Schools are invariably asked to assist families who have experienced domestic violence and family separations. Often, it is easy for staff to get embroiled in the dispute. This results in unnecessary stress on staff and distracting staff and organisations from their core role or business in educating young people.
Our Fiona Manderson (Senior Associate), delivered a workshop paper at the Queensland Association of School Registrars (QASR) National Conference held in Noosa on 11 September 2015. This paper provides an overview of some family law issues to assist staff to understand the framework involved in Family Law Disputes.
