HM briefings, reports, consultations
Outcomes from our Time for Change co-design workshop which considered how best to support and safeguard mothers and children who are victims of abusive relationships.
Submission to the LCA Legislation Committee Inquiry into the Family Law Amendment Bill 2023 (Australia)
Our submission to the Legal & Constitutional Affairs Legislation Committee Inquiry in relation to the Hague Abduction Convention.
Hague Mothers briefing paper based on a presentation prepared for the 2022 FiLiA Conference. Focus is on Australia.
This position paper is based on extensive academic research, legal expertise, professional understanding of the impact of domestic violence on mothers and their children, and the experience of protective mothers who are further abused by the Hague process. It is a wish list, but one based on the reality of the Hague Convention which, in over 75% of cases, directly and profoundly undermines the safety and well-being of mothers and children.
This cannot be allowed to stand.
