Local MP Calls for More Legal Help for Women and Children

LNP Shadow Minister for Child Safety and local MP Stephen Bennett is up in arms following a report revealing family court parent orders are putting kids at risk. The Courier Mail reports a Brisbane mother is fearing for her child's safety with a temporary protection order against her ex-husband being futile due to an existing parenting order. Mr Bennett says it shows that more legal assistance is needed to help vulnerable women and their kids navigate their way through complicated legal processes. He says at the last election the LNP pledged community legal centres with an additional $5 million in funding.
