The Initiating Application or Response – A Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Family Law Courts of Australia

by | Aug 24, 2023 | Family Law

The Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia (‘FCFCOA’) requires a variety of documents be filed with it when you are in Court for a family law matter, whether parenting, property, child support or divorce. Nevett Ford presents a series of brief guides to common documents you might be required to prepare.

The Initiating Application or Response is a document required when you want the Court to do something or make an Order, this is where you say, specifically, what you want. It can be hard to be specific sometimes if not everyone is being upfront in their disclosure, but the more detail you can include the better usually.
