Courts and Tribunals
- The Family Court of Australia deals with family and relationship matters. Additional information about Family Court matters can be found on the Family Law Network Australia web site.
- The Federal Circuit Court is a court with federal jurisdiction. It operates as a separate court and broadly exercises concurrent jurisdiction with the superior courts, the Federal Court of Australia and the Family Court of Australia. By way of comparison with the State hierarchy of courts, the Federal Circuit Court is similar in status to that of the State District Courts.
- The Federal Court's jurisdiction covers almost all civil matters arising under Australian Federal law and some summary criminal matters.
- The High Court hears appeals from both Federal and State Courts.
