    Our Family Law Services division gives legal help and support to children and adults experiencing family law issues including child protection, child support and maintenance, parenting issues, domestic and family violence, and divorce and property settlement. Where possible, we encourage people to resolve their problems without going to court by using our dispute resolution services.

    Your responsibilities include:

    Perform clinical and forensic assessments of families and children, including child custody and pre-sentence evaluations.
    Prepare complex assessment reports for use in the family law, child protection and criminal jurisdictions.
    Provide expert opinion and evidence to the court, including being cross examined and challenged on your opinion.
    Liaise and consult with Legal Aid Queensland lawyers, external practitioners and/or preferred suppliers about case management matters.This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Australia License.
