Abstract
ANROWS has commissioned research on domestic, family and sexual violence and family law. This project led by Dr Jane Wangmann, will examine the experiences of self-represented litigants (SRL) where family violence is a factor in family law proceedings. The project will view family law proceedings and processes in their entirety: that is, from the commencement of proceedings—including whether the Self Represented Litigant (SRL) obtains early advice, the completion of forms, service of forms, navigation of the various stages in the court process, what takes place in the court room—through to the final outcome.s
