The Australian Law Reform Commission was asked by the Family Law Council to join it in researching legal aid costs and related issues in repetitive access applications coming before the Family Court. The ALRC’s work on the project was published independently as ALRC Report 73 (tabled June 1995).
The research for the report encompasses a survey of the nature of ‘intractable contact cases’ and an analysis of reasons for these protracted disputes.
The recommendations of ALRC 73 include strategies aimed at preventing such disputes where possible through non-litigious options, earlier identification of complex and potentially complex cases and case management.
