Family Court and risk assessment guidelines 3.3





Our Commitment

As per the Third Action Plan of the National Plan, we will continue to work with the Commonwealth Government in reviewing and streamlining the family violence risk identification and assessment tools used within the justice system, including the family law system.

What have we achieved

While this initiative is led by the Australian Government, the State Government continues to play a meaningful role in improving the National Information Sharing Framework

What is next

The State Government will continue to play an important role and has also attracted funding from the Australian Government to ensure supports are provided in the Family Court through a SAPOL and Department for Child Protection officer

What difference will we make

As a core partner in the fight against family, domestic and sexual violence, the State Government will continue to raise awareness across the legal communities to make improvements that save lives.
