About us

If you have found yourself at this survey then you are interested in joining the Central Coast Family Law Pathways Network.

We are a Federal Government initiative set up to respond to the need for improved coordination within the family law system. Our purpose is to support, resource and foster collaboration between professionals working within or alongside this system. We offer a medium for professional, non-legal and legal communication and coordination. We have an ultimate vision of a connected family law system that is a clear pathway for families, minimises conflict and supports the best interest of children. We aim to:
  1. Establish and maintain professional relationships between those working within or alongside the Family Law system
  2. Raise knowledge of the role and expertise of all our members
  3. Provide training in a multi-disciplinary way to network members
There are no membership conditions or fees. The only requirements are that you work in the wider Family Law sector and have an interest in maintaining links with others. Benefits of our membership include:
  • Access to the latest local service updates from organisations
  • The opportunity to count your attendance at network events as a unit towards your Continuing Professional Development (CPD) 
  • A better understanding of the other programs and services within the sector
  • The opportunity to hear expert opinions from our speakers at our bi monthly General Forums
  • A subscription to our seasonal Newsletter
  • The opportunity to meet other service providers in the Family Law system 
  • The opportunity to participate in multi-disciplinary training

This network is managed by a local Steering Committee which draws on expertise from government, non government, judicial and legal organisations on the Central Coast. We employ a Project Officer to operate the network and also to act on the advice of the committee.
