Antonia W started this petition to Family Law Court of Australia

Action needs to be taken to update the current policies and procedures within the Family Court.

I have left a domestic violence situation and in order to move away with my child have so far been stuck with $87,000 in legal fees which is still increasing daily and two “duty list hearings” which was less than ten minutes in front of the judge with no orders made unless they were via consent by both my ex partner and myself. These days in court cost me $6,600 per day. 

Im left waiting until February 2020 for the hearing which will take three to four days and cost another $40,000 approximately and even that day, no outcome will be reached and then yet another day in court when the outcome is finalised.

I’m left financially ruined and constantly stressed and upset trying to be the best mother I can be. 

The Family Court is so overcrowded by people arguing over money and property that should be told they cannot get time in front of a judge because other people have more serious matters and are left waiting years to get away from situations that are unsafe
