Abstract

Since 2003, the Australian Attorney-General’s Department has funded Family Law Pathways Network (‘FLPN’) to provide professional assistance for separating families when navigating the legal and human support network maze. The FLPN serve in providing an assured access to information and necessary services in the family justice system. Thirty-three FLPN now operate across Australia. FLPN funding relies on annual government funding approval creating a fragile funding basis for their continued work. In response the FLPN has sought evidence to determine just how important their role is in the family domain. This article reports on an evidence-based research project that provides a snapshot of FLPN activities and their value to the local community across FLPN communities in Australia.
