Issues regarding family can often be an emotional and stressful time for all involved.
However, family law as we know it hasn’t always been the way it is.
As attitudes change around marriage and family, so must the law reflect that. Often what was forbidden, and frowned upon is now accepted as a social norm.
Australia is no exception! Australian family law is rooted deeply in its history. As Australia grew from a penal colony to its own independent nation, so too has the institution of family grown and evolved.
