Specialist Family and Domestic Violence Court at Southport

19th July 2018

We attended the second workshop run by Family Law Pathways Gold Coast last week at Bond University – it was such an informative and insightful look into the specialist Family and Domestic Violence Court at Southport and the interaction of that Court with the Federal Circuit Court and the Queensland Police Service.

During the panel discussions, a simple yet powerful comment was made by His Honour Judge Lapthorn of the Federal Circuit Court when discussing the Family Law Act:

“Children have all the rights, parents have the responsibilities.”

This simple sentence is a good focus in parenting matters – it brings us back to focus on what is in the best interests of a child, and not get distracted by the difficulties that may exist between the parents.

Our office is able to assist with domestic violence related matters, and all manner of parenting matters.  If you would like to speak with a solicitor, on a no-obligation basis, please call our office on 07 5526 3646.
