Families, children and young people can come into contact with the law in many ways, but the areas most relevant to social workers are family law (regarding divorce, property and parenting orders), usually heard in the Family Court or the Federal Circuit Court, family violence and child abuse, which is mainly dealt with in the criminal legal system, and child protection, which is usually heard in state and territory children’s courts.
