Tasmania's new Family Court judge has been sworn in at a ceremony in Hobart.

Justice Robert Benjamin replaces outgoing Justice Michael Hannon who is on leave and retires next month.

Justice Benjamin is a past president of the Law Society of New South Wales and was a senior partner in Sydney law firm Watts McCray.

The new judge is hoping to introduce a children's cases program which has been piloted in New South Wales.

The program allows parties to Family Court cases to focus on the future needs of children rather than on past issues between the parents.
