Smokeball’s 2022 State of Family Law Conference – Navigating the FCFCOA  Merger will now include a free national webinar on 25 February at 1pm AEDT and the roadshow will take place in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne in June 2022. 

The CPD accredited webinar will feature a panel of expert family law specialists including Senior Judicial Registrar Anne-Marie Rice of the FCFCOA; Amanda Little, Principal Solicitor of Amanda Little  & Associates; Fiona Kirkman, CEO of FamilyProperty and Principal of Kirkman Family Law; and  Therese Aroyan, Product Owner and Project Manager of FamilyProperty.  

The webinar will explore the key changes that have arisen from the merger while identifying  practical solutions for family law firms and include the following topics: 

  • The strengthened focus on dispute resolution in the FCFCOA 
  • Client journey through the FCFCOA 
  • Pre-action procedures for parenting and property matters 
  • The enhanced role of registrars 
  • Compliance and costs 

“We currently have over 600 registrations for the webinar,” explains Fiona Kirkman, CEO of  FamilyProperty, “which shows how much appetite there is for practical guidance on the newly  merged Court. It is the most significant change to the family courts since 1975 and I am looking forward to speaking alongside this expert panel to discuss how family lawyers can best navigate  these changes.”
