Most criminal and family law practitioners will at some time need to navigate the difficult issues which arise in concurrent criminal and family proceedings, whether they be Family Law Act proceedings, private law proceedings, care proceedings or criminal prosecution. There is very little overlap in approach, ethos and practice between the criminal and family jurisdictions and this guide is intended to assist specialist practitioners with cross-jurisdictional issues that commonly arise.

Drafted for the Family-Criminal Interface Committee, this authoritative guide:

  • provides a general overview of the jurisdictions involved
  • includes practical advice and assistance to criminal and family practitioners dealing with such cases
  • identifies and promotes best practice in terms of information sharing to improve dialogue, understanding and, ultimately, outcomes, and
  • offers useful features including worked examples, checklists and route maps to illustrate and clarify the topics covered.

Accessible and practical the Guide also includes useful Protocols and contacts.
