A bill to collapse the specialist Family Court into the generalist Federal Circuit Court (FCC) must not proceed, amid revelations the FCC is facing severe backlogs of more than a year’s worth of migration and family law cases. The FCC’s Annual Report, released on Friday, reveals stark concerns that the FCC is simply unable to cope with its increasing workload, putting vulnerable children, Australian families and Judges at significant risk. The FCC’s pending migration law caseload spiked by 58 percent, up from 7,674 applications in 2017–18 to 12,158 applications in 2019-20. If current filing rates continue, the report concludes that without further resources the pending migration caseload will overtake the pending family law caseload in less than two years.
