Review of the Adoption Act 1984

By LIV Submissions

Child Welfare Human Rights 


This submission has been prepared by members of the LIV Family Law Section, Administrative Law and Human Rights Section and Reconciliation Advancement Committee. It is intended to be a public submission and the LIV has no objections to the Victorian Law Reform Commission publishing this submission on its website.

The LIV initiated a working group made up of private practitioners who work directly in adoption matters and in child protection. This submission reflects their experience and expertise.

For convenience, this submission is organised using headings from the Consultation Paper to which this submission directly responds.

The LIV thanks the Victorian Law Reform Commission for providing us with the opportunity to attend the roundtable consultations and provide written submissions in this review.
