Family Court reforms can't come soon enough - lawyer

From Morning Report, 8:51 am on 17 June 2019

A law professor says the family court system is broken and changes can't come soon enough.

A review has found the radical reforms of 2014 have delivered few of the promised benefits for parents and children.

It describes the system as not fit for purpose and is recommending 70 changes which could cost up to $60 million a year.

Professor Mark Henaghan told Corin Dann the 2014 changes were disastrous.
