New report: Small Claims, Large Battles
June 8, 2018
The Victorian Legal Services Commissioner, Fiona McLeay, was honoured to speak at the launch of the Women’s Legal Service report, Small Claims, Large Battles in May. The report presents the findings from their 18 month project investigating the experiences of vulnerable women as they seek fair financial outcomes through the family law system. This project, funded through the Victorian Legal Services Board Grants Program, found that disadvantaged women, who had a small amount of property to divide after separation, lack affordable pathways to resolve their family law property disputes. In order to improve women’s access to fair property settlements the report makes 15 recommendations.
