Family Law Courses

These courses are designed for people who have cases in the Family Court or who are considering issuing an application in the Family Court.

They are also suitable for counsellors, coaches, psychologists, family violence services workers, advocates and family members supporting people engaged with the family court.

The courses can not provide individual legal advice and you should seek independent legal advice from a family lawyer in addition to the general understanding of the court provisions that you will gain from the courses.

Our courses have been developed by Family Law Professionals to provide a better understanding of the main provisions and to overcome areas of confusion about the Family Court System in Australia.

Family Violence Court Legisltation

In Australia each state has separate legislation (Laws) about family violence. The defitions for what is family violence, the way that protection from family violence can be sought and the risks and penalties for breaching a family violence order are all slightly different.

In these courses we aim to provide quality information for people from each state or territory in Australia about Family Violence laws so that you can understand the general obligations for yourself and for others under the law in terms of what is and isn’t acceptable behaviour under these types of laws.

With any legal information and education it can only ever be general in nature as there may be differences in your situations to the examples used in our courses.

We recommend that you always seek out independent legal advice if you are facing a family violence order.

If you are being subjected to physical, psychological, financial or other forms of abuse we strongly encourage you to speak with a lawyer, a family violence support service, the policy or your family violence court. If you are having difficulty with any of those services feel free to contact us as we may be able to help you to find out why, help you to review your safety plan or advocate on your behalf.

Our services are not government funded and in this area are intended to help people who are falling through the safety nets provided by government funded services.

Our course design model

Our courses are based on the 4mat system of instructional design.  Sounds fancy but it is based on four simple questions.

Why does the person doing the course need to know this? 
What is the benefit that having this information going to provide and what is the cost or possible consequence of not having this information?

What is the course about?
We know that the people who visit our site are mostly people experiencing relationship conflict are doing it tough and don’t have a lot of time for waffle or theoretical information that doesn’t help them in the here and now.  That is why our courses are short, focused on a specific aspect of the topic and that is stated very clearly in the intro topic that you do for free before you buy the course.

How is the knowledge applied?
This is the practical part of the course that looks at case studies, examples, videos from current practitioners or industry experts, exercises, tasks and other strategies to help our learners to bridge the gap between knowing (what) and applying (how).  This is the guts of the courses because to develop a skill or to be able to access knowledge in situations when you need it you have to be able to apply it.

What if?
This is the final stage of all of our courses and it provides you with information about the next steps you can take in your learning journey, support or professional services available to help you or that you can contact if you have questions about your specific circumstances.

Remember that a course does not, can not and will never substitute for the years of study and experience that a professional service provider brings to a consultation.

“A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.” is a saying that was coined for a very good reason. A little knowledge can lead you into a false sense of confidence but it can also protect you from people seeking to take advantage of you.  So be smart, do your research, learn what you need to know and make use of professionals expertise wisely.
