19 April 2018 – A parenting talk was organised for parents who were new to Australia to give them an insight into how the legal system in Australia works. Parents gained a deeper understanding on their responsibilities to their children, laws concerning their children as well as family laws and policies at work in Australia.
The session also covered the following topics:
- An overview of the legal system in Australia
- Information on Australian family law
- Rights and responsibility as a parent
- Laws relating to children
Handouts were provided to the participants in different languages to help parents understand better. Parents who attended the talk found the session useful since it provided them with information about their rights, being responsible parents. This will help them carry out their duties well.
