Family Law Act 1975 Section 79

2. The information shall include, but is not limited to, information about the family counselling services available to the parties and the child or children concerned when they adapt to the consequences of orders made under this Part. (b) The need to ensure the greatest possible protection and assistance to the family as a natural and fundamental unit of society, in particular when it is responsible for the care and upbringing of dependent children; (4) Subsection (2) does not authorize the Chief Justice to enter into a contract under which the Commonwealth pays or receives an amount in excess of $1,000,000 or, if a higher amount is required, the greater amount, except with the permission of the Attorney General. (2AC) The Governor General shall not assign a judge to the Appeal Division referred to in subsection 2AB if, as a result of that assignment, the number of members of the Appeal Division assigned under this subsection exceeds the prescribed number. 2A. The person referred to in subsection (2) may be either a parent of the child, a person other than the child`s parent (including a grandparent or other parent of the child), or the persons referred to in this subsection. Notwithstanding any provision of this Act or any other Act, the Judicial Registrar shall not be subject to the direction or control of any person or entity in the exercise of any power conferred under subsection 26B(1). Under Article 79(4)(c), the court must take into account the contributions of each party to the well-being of the family. The main objective of this article is to ensure that the court gives due weight to the parties` respective contributions as housewives or relatives, regardless of their financial benefits. These contributions include cooking for the family, caring for children and other activities at home. (a) except in the case of an order made before the day on which this subsection comes into force for which a corresponding order under subsection 71(1) of the repealed Act was made before that day, section 55A of this Act applies in respect of the order; and in the event that one or more of those exceptions arise, it becomes relevant for the court to rely on Article 75(2)(o). The family court has the power to make final decisions on the property of the parties in the event of the breakdown of a marriage.

These powers are set out in section 79 of the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth) (the „Act”) and are reflected in section 90SM for parties in a factual relationship. (1A) Subject to this Part, a matrimonial matter (with the exception of proceedings of the type referred to in subparagraph (a) (ii) or (b) of the definition of the ground for marriage in paragraph 4(1)) may be brought under this Act before the Federal Circuit Court of Australia. (1) A lawyer who is consulted by a person who intends to commence proceedings under this Act shall provide that person with the documents containing the information required under section 12B (on extrajudicial family services and judicial proceedings and services). The Executive Director of the court concerned must ensure that the applicant is referred to a family counsellor or family dispute resolution practitioner for information on these matters. (3) Pending proceedings for annulment of marriage on grounds of nullity of marriage or proceedings referred to in point (b) of the definition of the ground for marriage in Article 4(1) may be continued and treated as if they were proceedings under this Act. The usual situation in family law proceedings is that each party bears its own costs. The law also abolished prison as punishment for maintenance creditors and imprisoned those detained for contempt of court. This section discusses the first category of consideration and its relationship to the judicial assessment of the claim based on the parties` contributions. (d) proceedings are initiated pursuant to regulations within the meaning of Articles 109, 110, 111, 111A or 111B or Article 125(1)(f) or (g) or, in accordance with the Rules of Procedure of the Court of Justice, for the purposes of Article 123(1)(r); or (1) Subject to paragraph 2, the family court, the Supreme Court of the Northern Territory or the family court of a State may authorize the commencement of proceedings for the adoption of a child by a prescribed adoptive parent.
