Family law and child support systems exist to assist all members of the family group.
Family law covers a range of issues and areas of law including marriage and divorce, property division, domestic violence, child protection and same-sex relationships. The Queensland Law Handbook covers these issues and more in its Family Law chapter.
Family law can apply at any time in the relationship – including before, during and after the relationship.
Several Queensland community legal centres provide legal advice and assistance on family law and child support. To find your nearest centre search our find legal help directory.
