Family Law (Priority Property Pools under $500,000) Financial Cases pilot

From 1 March 2020, the Federal Circuit Court will commence a pilot for family law applications filed in Brisbane, Parramatta, Adelaide and Melbourne that meet the definition of a Priority Property Pool under $500,000 (PPP500) case. The pilot will run for two years.

The aim of the pilot is to trial an improved response to achieving just, efficient and timely resolution of PPP500 cases at a cost that is reasonable and proportionate to the circumstances of the case.
