This report sets out the overall findings of the Evaluation of the 2012 Family Violence Amendments. The evaluation examined the effects of amendments to the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth) that were intended to improve the family law system’s responses to matters involving family violence and safety concerns.
The evaluation research program had three different elements. The findings from these three projects are described separately in the following reports:
- Experiences of Separated Parents Study (PDF 4.4 MB)
- Responding to Family Violence: A Survey of Family Law Practices and Experiences (PDF 3.7 MB)
- Court Outcomes Project (PDF 1.4 MB)
