Jon Graham started this petition to The Senate and

I have been a family mediator for 26 years. I have seen all of the family law reforms and sat with clients as we hoped that the latest reform would be safer than the last.

This work is hard. We practitioners live with the fear that one day it may be our client who is injured or killed by an ex-partner. We rely on the availability of a specialist court (as broken as it is), to provide some back up.

In the coming weeks the Senate will debate a bill to change again the Family Court and to make it part of a generalist federal court jurisdiction. What little hope for a system that fosters family safety is dwindling.

The Family Court is a specialist jurisdiction. It needs judges and registrars who "get it". We family mediators need to believe that the system can help... as broken as the family law system is, please do not support this change.

Silence will only support the creation of bad law. Please sign to stop this change at the Senate.
