Regulation 7 Family Consultants


Family consultants:

Conduct child and family assessments for the purpose of preparing a reports that have been ordered by the Court under specific sections of the Family Law Act.

These reports are to assist the parties and the Court determine arrangements that will bring about the best outcomes for children.

Our UMC family consultants are not employees of the Court but are private practitioners who have satisfied the Court that they have the requisite qualifications and expertise to undertake the duties of a family consultant. This type of family consultant is appointed to the role under the Family Law Regulations, and is often referred to as a Regulation 7 Family consultant.
