The Association has the following aims and objectives, as follows:

To promote Family Law as a branch of law in its own right, avoiding confrontation where possible, and challenging unacceptable behaviours where necessary.

To provide a point of reference for the public and for other organisations on family law issues.

To monitor and promote the reform of Family Law which serves the needs and concerns of families.

To provide education and training in Family Law and in skills necessary for good practice; with opportunities for members to meet and exchange knowledge, views and ideas.
