The Court is constituted by judges and exercises federal jurisdiction in family law and child support, bankruptcy, administrative law, consumer law, migration, industrial law, human rights, intellectual property, privacy and admiralty matters. The Court cannot deal with family law or child support matters in Western Australia, where there is a state family court. Staff of the Federal Circuit Court can provide advice on the procedures of the Court, but cannot give legal advice or assist in the conduct of proceedings.
