The Family Court of Australia, through its specialised judges and staff, helps Australians resolve their most complex family disputes. The Court was established under the Family Law Act 1975 and has original jurisdiction in all states and territories except Western Australia. The Court determines cases with complex law and facts including cases with jurisdictional issues, multiple parties and financial cases. The Court also determines cases with specialised areas (Hague, special medical procedures, serious cases of entrenched conflict, violence and abuse, international relocation), and provides national coverage as the appellate court in family law matters.
