What happens when the Court orders a Family Report?
When a person comes to the Court in relation to a parenting matter, the Court is asked to decide what is in the best interests of the children.
The Court may order a Family Report to help them make this decision if assessed as appropriate by the Family Consultant and the Judicial Officer (Judge or Magistrate).
Family Reports are usually prepared by your Family Consultant.
The Court will define the terms of the order to suit your situation. These terms form a set of instructions for your Family Consultant.
The attached factsheets or other similar documents are provided on an as-is basis on behalf of the document authors. If you require any further information on the factsheets, please contact the factsheet authors, as credited on the factsheets themselves.
