About the Webinar

Is it rare these days to run a Kennon argument. The evidence required coupled with the further trauma experienced by the victim-survivor giving that evidence does not usually outweigh the minimal adjustment which may be ordered if the Court accepted a Kennon argument. However, recent legislative change may make Kennon arguments more relevant than ever. This session examines the current and future landscape, including:

  • Understanding the proposed reforms contained in draft Family Law Amendment Bill (No. 2) 2023
  • What is required to successfully run a Kennon argument and practical issues practitioners and clients face when attempting to run Kennon arguments
  • When allegations of violent or abusive conduct don't meet the Kennon test – what are the pros and cons of including them in affidavit evidence – fault by the back door?
  • Acting for the alleged perpetrator – what can you do
  • What are the cases over the last few years telling us about the Kennon claim – are there any trends
  • Legal remedies which may exist outside the Family Law Act, including tortious claim for damages, and how such claims may affect and be dealt with as part of a family law property settlement
