The Family Court of Australia and the Federal Circuit Court of Australia (the Courts) are leading the way in assisting families that have experienced family violence or other safety concerns to navigate the family law system.
Commencing in the Federal Circuit Court of Australia (FCC), the Lighthouse Project is an innovative approach to screen for risk, with a primary focus on improving outcomes for families involved in the family law system.
