Amendments to the Family Law Rules 2004 which commence on 1 March 2009 implement and support a new case management pathway and docket system.

The case management directions issued under Practice Direction No. 3 of 2004 are therefore no longer applicable.

Revocation of Practice Direction

Practice Direction No. 3 of 2004 ‘Case Management Directions’ is revoked with effect from 1 March 2009.

The revocation of this Practice Direction does not revive any earlier Practice Direction revoked by it.

The Honourable Diana Bryant
Chief Justice of the Family Court of Australia
