The Family Justice Council aims to facilitate the delivery of better and quicker outcomes for families and children who use the family justice system. The Council's primary role is to promote an inter-disciplinary approach to family justice, and through consultation and research, to monitor how effectively the system both as a whole and through its component parts delivers the service the Government and the public need and to advise on reforms necessary for continuous improvement. It is chaired by the President of the Family Division and under its revised terms of reference provides expert advice directly to the Family Justice Board and Government on the operation and reform of the Family Justice System.
Established 2004. The FJC Secretariat became part of the President of the Family Division's Private Office in August 2012. The Triennial review, which started in October 2013, is at the end of Stage 1, currently awaiting confirmation to commence Stage 2.
