For a family who is separating, or have separated, there can be many practical and emotional issues. Getting timely and appropriate advice is crucial to helping them respond to their situation.

What is the Family Law Pathways Network?

The Family Law Pathways Network is a national program for professionals working with these families and is funded by the Attorney General’s Department, while run in Tasmania under the auspice of Relationships Australia Tasmania. The Network’s aim is to support practitioners to work collaboratively, maintain strong working relationships and develop appropriate referral mechanisms, across the broader family law system.

There are two Family Law Pathways Networks across Tasmania – Greater Hobart and Launceston & Northern West Tasmania. These Networks coordinate events and the development and distribution of resources.

Who can join the Family Law Pathways Network?

The Family Law Pathways Network is open to all professionals working with members of separating or separated families, who are interested in strengthening relationships with other practitioners.

Membership is free, and participation is as you wish.
