What Court hears family law matters in Joondalup, Western Australia?

In all other Australian jurisdictions, parties can commence proceedings in the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia under the Family Law Act 1975 (Cth). However, most married parties and all de facto parties living in Western Australia proceed through the Family Court of Western Australia.

The Family Court of Western Australia is separately established and governed by the Family Court Act 1997 (WA). This statute adopts the same time limits that apply to married parties in the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia but also introduces additional limits for parties to consider.
