One group worth getting behind

In my previous post, I lamented about the lack of organisations – even the lack of websites – that broadcast fact without bias. Unfortunately, it seems the majority of hubs on the internet revolve around man versus woman, mother versus father. As I’ve said, this kind of dialogue will get us nowhere.

The Family Law Reform Coalition (FLRC) is – as far as I have gathered – one of the most balanced, forthright voices for this cause. They are a collection of impassioned people looking for a change in the Family Court, peacefully protesting against the lengthy, costly court battles that leave many family members by the wayside. They are hot on the heels of the government and the judicial system, vying for more Family Court judges, gender equality, and a greater support network for the families going through divorce.

I can imagine it would be difficult to remain neutral in such an emotionally straining situation. But it pays to be levelheaded. This is seemingly ironic, seeing as divorces tend to end up in court when partners can’t remain calm. At least, invest your time in support groups that will be beneficial, not detrimental. I won’t pretend to have the answers or a solution to this problem, but I will suggest giving FLRC a good hard look if you haven’t already.

  1. I like the people at the Family Law Reform Coalition; they are willing to organise, take action and reach out to all sorts to form a genuine coalition.

    I think it’s great that you are supporting a group like this rather than single-interest protest groups.

    I have a question regarding your article: Could you clarify the following?

    “They are hot on the heels of the government and the judicial system, vying for more Family Court judges, gender equality, and a greater support network for the families going through divorce.”

    What do you mean by “hot on the heels”?

    Who is vying for more judges?

  2. Thank you!

    When I say “hot on the heels”, I’m referring to their talks with politicians such as former Senator John Madigan to enact policy change, rather than sitting idly behind a computer.

    As for more judges: I looked back on FLRC’s blog posts and I seem to have been mistaken – what they want is more than just more judges and/or more money, they want an overhaul of the system. My mistake!
