Federal Magistrate Court Initiating Application (Family Law)

Reminder from the Federal Magistrates Court:

In March 2009 amendments were made to the combined Initiating Application form in light of the conferral of de facto jurisdiction. The amended form included a new Part H. In the Federal Magistrates Court litigants were advised to use the revised Initiating Application from 1 March 2009 however to avoid hardship the Federal Magistrates Court allowed a period of 3 months grace for the filing of the previously approved Initiating Application.This notice is by way of reminder to advise that as from 1 June 2009 there will no longer be a period of grace and litigants will be required to file the Initiating Application as approved for use from 1 March 2009. The form is available at the following link: http://www.familylawcourts.gov.au/wps/wcm/connect/FLC/Home/Forms/Family+Law+Courts+forms/Initiating+Application
