Families Need Fathers
ABF Legal was established by the Australian Brotherhood of Fathers to provide expert advocacy support, legal advice and representation in all legal matters.
The ABF is a lobby group formed to raise awareness around the important role fathers play in the family unit while highlighting where policy fails to protect the rights and welfare of fathers when they find themselves in crisis. Through the ABF volunteer program, executive members of the group identified a failure of the family law and domestic violence legal network to adequately represent the needs of fathers who were dealing with relationship separation and subsequent child access issues.
The Australian Brotherhood of Fathers, in association with their partnered domestic violence charity Endalldv, elected to start their own law firm under the brand ABF Legal with the goal of representing Australian fathers and their families in all criminal, domestic violence and family law matters while advocating for improved access to services and support for all victims of family and domestic violence.
The motto of ABF Legal is “Families Need Fathers” which represents our law firm’s underlying principle that our children and our society are better with fathers as role models and providers.
