Legal Experts Propose Shake-Up to Divorce Arrangements

Sunday, June 16th, 2019

Divorced parents would take turns living in the marital home with their children, under a radical plan to shake-up Australia’s family court system.

The embattled family law system is the subject of an 18-month inquiry by the Australian Law Reform Commission, which is providing advice to the federal government.

The latest recommendation would see children remain in the family home in an attempt to minimise disruption.

ALRC President Sarah Derrington has told News Corp, splitting time under each parent’s roof isn’t in a child’s best interest and they should have a say on where they live after a divorce.

She says flawed custody decisions are creating a generation of psychologically damaged children.
