    Through a Glass Darkly: Revisit a family whose case you thought was closed

    The Family Law Residential is a 1.5 day intensive masterclass held biennially which follows the journey of one family through their family law disputes.

    Over the weekend, participants will obtain 10 CPD units as they follow this family’s journey through a series of interactive workshops, fishbowl scenarios, mock advocacy and panel discussions designed to enhance the practical skills and legal knowledge of experienced family law practitioners.  

    At the 2018 Family Law Residential, we will revisit the Spiro family to see what has gone awry since 2015. Together we will shed some light on how best to manage a family who has not moved on after the finalisation of their dispute. Participants need not have attended the 2015 Residential as this will be a new take on a closed file – something that happens often in daily practice. 

    The issues the family faces will include:

    Parenting

    • Allegations of family violence (psychological) towards a child (from new step-parent)
    • The Impact of Trauma: looking at the long-term effects of family violence on children – hearing from the experts
    • Contravention application (withholding child due to allegation of risk)
    • Allegations of parental alienation
    • Possible international relocation

    Property/Financial

    • Purported transfer of joint property out of the jurisdiction
    • Setting aside property orders: allegations of non-disclosure
    • Restraining orders: purported transfer of joint property out of the jurisdiction
    • Section 106B applications and competing third party rights

    Senior legal practitioners and barristers will join judicial officers from both the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court to share their personal insight and experience with participants and provide practical tips from the bench.

    "This event remains the best, most expository and illuminating practical and genuinely entertaining and engaging CPD event on offer to family law practitioners in Victoria (and likely beyond). I have attended many CPD events over the past decade which focus on family law issues and there is daylight between this conference and every other conference I’ve attended with reference to all applicable assessment criteria. The standard and pinnacle in Family Law CPD. A credit to the organisers."
