Introduction
The Family Law WEB Guide is Australia's leading Family law WEB Portal. We are non-sexist, non-sectarian and non-political. However, some of the groups and organisations in the Communiy section are politically orientated and may have agendas to change legislation that affects children and families. The presence of these organisations does not reflect an endorsement of any views expressed, it reflects an endorsement by Family Law WEB Guide of the right of free and open comment in a democratic society about the future of Australia, it's children and it's family values.

Some of the forums are gender specific, providing information and support for both women's and men's unique issues. The Family Law WEB Guide does not promote or support a gender bias and many of the organisations in the Community section are composed of both female and male executives, members and representatives.

The menu's, options, features and forums displayed, vary depending upon your membership to the various communities, groups and organisations. Whilst you do not have to become a member to use these forums (you can post as a Guest), as a general courtesy, posters are asked to register on the site, rather than post as a Guest. This alllows your post to be referenced between Moderators and provides some accountability for your comments. For more information on becoming a member read here.

Posting
The forum section is divided into forums, topics and posts, you can find out more here. Before posting a question in the forums you should have read, (i) The site rules, (ii) The 'New Users' forum, (iii) The FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions), and ascertained whether your intended post has been answered in these sections.

The site has many forums, sub forums and topics so if your new to the forums don't be too worried about where you post, as the site Moderators will move the thread or post to the right place. If in doubt use the Miscellaneous/General Forum

Be respectful of the opinions of other members, and do not discriminate based on nationality, sexuality, gender, religion, race or political conviction.

Moderators have the right to edit, censor, delete or otherwise modify any post which violates these rules. The site administrators reserve the right to either suspend or ban any member who breaks any rule, whether the rule is agreed as broken by the alleged offender or not. No warning or explanations need be given.

Topic Creep
On occasions postings may 'creep' away from the intended forum and original topic. Before you post look at the both the forum and the topic you are posting or replying into and consider whether you are in the 'right place' and that your post is relevant and on Topic. If your post goes off topic it will likely be transferred to another forum. If it deviates widely off topic and does not relate to the sites activities it will probably be deleted. If a post is totally 'off topic' or seeks to 'hijack' or use the original post to create a new sub thread or topic, the post may be moved or deleted.
