On 25 March 2011 the Senate referred the Family Law Legislation Amendment (Family Violence and Other Measures) Bill 2011 for inquiry and report. The bill makes amendments to the Family Law Act 1975 to prioritise the safety of children in parenting matters where children and families are at risk of violence and abuse. The bill also makes several technical amendments which seek to correct drafting and minor policy matters, and provide other efficiencies for the courts and litigants. Submissions should be received by 29 April 2011. The reporting date is 23 June 2011.
