Federal Circuit & Family Court of Australia - Lighthouse Update

Update to the Profession April 2023

New court process focuses on the safety of children and their families by identifying and addressing issues of family violence and other risks.

The expansion of Lighthouse supports the Courts’ priorities which includes the objective to shine a light on the scourge of family violence, improve the outcome of matters involving family violence and other risks, and to keep children and vulnerable parties safe. Since commencement of the expansion 60% of risk screens have been identified as high risk, with over 400 matters being placed on the Evatt List.
