Shared Parenting Council of Australia

The Shared Parenting Council of Australia was incorporated in September 2002 as a representative body for a range of Parent, Children, Church and Family Law Reform organisations who share the common purpose of prescribing in law, every child's fundamental human right to an equal opportunity and relationship with both their Mother and Father following parental separation or divorce.
The Shared Parenting Council has maintained a commitment to the primary principal that each parent shall facilitate and encourage a close relationship with children ensuring that children have the benefit of both of their parents having a meaningful involvement in their lives and is working to deliver real shared parenting time outcomes for children The Shared Parenting Council believes in the fundemental principal of a presumption of equal time notwithstanding the safety of children is paramount and the ability of one or other of the parents to support equal or substaintially equal time arrangements
If you or a member of your family is currently going through the Family Court system for residence or contact with a child, then you will be experiencing one of the most traumatic episodes in your life.

If you or a member of your family is currently going through the Family Court system for residence or contact with a child, then you will be experiencing one of the most traumatic episodes in your life.

Family Breakdown, separation and divorce have become increasingly common in Australia today, with an estimated 50,000 or more families per year experiencing the loss and devastation these life changing circumstances can bring.

Not only is there a loss to familial relationships with your partner and children involved, but very often great financial hardship that can last for years after the event.

The Shared Parenting Council of Australia is well aware of these hardships, and our representatives are experienced in all aspects of the Family Law process as it currently stands.

We have researchers, legal advisors and counsellors as part of our team and through our affiliate organisations can offer genuine assistance to individuals and families in crisis.

Many of you will be experiencing the potential loss of your parenting role through 'forced' divorce and how your once unfettered access to your children is suddenly curtailed by Orders made in the Family Court.

Grandparents too, can experience a termination of their developmental role in their grandchildren's lives, and we also cater services for all family members exposed to this process.

Your first feelings from a Family Court Order can involve disbelief, anger and frustration at what is often a gross injustice to you, as a parent, and to your child or children through this system.

We understand your grief and are working on solutions to these problems - but we too need your help.

Join the Shared Parenting Council of Australia today and together we can help bring about change to the system that is destroying our children's lives through enforced separation and parental deprivation.

Your need is urgent and new solutions are required. With a small contribution to our cause, we hope to bring about change to the system - and provide better outcomes for you and your family.

Child Support
The Abbott government has called for a parliamentary inquiry into how the child support system works, including links between it and the Family Court. The House of Representatives Standing Committee on Social Policy and Legal Affairs has announced it has commenced a new inquiry into the Child Support Program, as requested by the Minister for Social Services Kevin Andrews. It has been charged with looking at under or over payments, and enforcement options for payments, flexibility for families, and providing the best options for children in conflict situations, how the program fits with mediation and Family Assistance frameworks, and links between the child support program and the Family Court.

Her parents can barely speak to each other. Tempers flared when her father took her on an overseas trip without telling her mother. In four sentences, the student traced the despair of thousands of children dragged into messy familial dramas in the courts - and their struggle to be heard above the fray. ''The heading of the writing  said that in the Family Court, children should have a say,'' Justice Paul Cronin said in a judgment published last week.
