Abstract:     
Australian family law has recently gone through the most important procedural revolution in child custody law in many years. This article explains these changes by first describing the division of legislative responsibility in parenting matters, and the language used in Australia in place of “custody”. It then explores the procedure for resolving parenting disputes. The changes include new laws dealing with parenting after separation, and new processes for resolving family disputes, in particular, the development of Family Relationship Centres. This paper was given in Kyoto, Japan in January 2010 and published in Japanese.
