Child Custody and Property Settlement

The Federal Circuit Court is where you can apply for hearings relating to child custody and property settlement.

What is the Federal Circuit Court?

You might attend the Federal Circuit Court (which used to be known as the Federal Magistrate’s Court) in some situations, relating to family law matters.

This is where you can apply for hearings relating to child custody and property settlement. For example, you and your former spouse might disagree about how you will distribute shared property. Or, you might not have reached an agreement about parenting arrangements.

Before you can apply for a matter to be heard, you usually need to have attempted mediation, such as Family Dispute Resolution.
