The Gauteng Family Law Forum is a voluntary association of family law practitioners, for and by Gauteng family lawyers. Members of this forum approach family law matters in a constructive way, seeking to resolve and not to inflame. In order to be a member of the forum, a practitioner must subscribe to the GFLF Code of Conduct.

The forum is not an organisation that provides pro bono services to the public.
