To the President and Members of the Senate: The petition of the undersigned residents of the State of New South Wales respectfully showeth:

The divorce laws of Australia are out of touch with the needs and wishes of most of our people. They are too complicated, too expensive and humiliating to those citizens whose marriages have broken down.

Your petitioners pray that the Senate will speedily pass the Family Law Bill with its provisions for irretrievable breakdown based on one year's separation as the only ground for divorce. by Senator Gietzelt.

Petition received.
