Domestic Violence

What is domestic violence?

Domestic violence can occur in many forms and can affect people of any age. If someone is hurting you it can be very scary and it may be hard to know how you can stop it. It is important to remember that no one has the right to be violent towards you and there are people out there who can help.

If you would like legal help, then please complete your free legal enquiry form on the left, or click here.

Below are some of the forms that domestic violence may take:

Physical - If someone is hurting you then you will probably have to take some action. Some forms of physical violence are: pushing, shaking, slapping, forcing you to do sexual things against your will, throwing things at you, damaging your property, hurting or killing pets.

Emotional - This form of violence is often unrecognised and can be very hurtful. Some forms of emotional violence are making threats, speaking in a way that is frightening, putting you down, and emotional blackmail.

Economic - Having money and being able to make decisions about it, is one means of being independent. If someone is controlling your money, keeping you financially dependent, or making you ask for money unreasonably, then this is a form of violence.

Social - This form of violence may happen in conjunction with other forms. If someone is insulting you or teasing you in front of other people, keeping you isolated from family and friends, controlling what you do and where you go, then they are being violent and you may need to take some action.

Spiritual - This violence is about not allowing you to have your own opinions about religion, cultural beliefs, and values.

The person who commits an act of Domestic & Family Violence may be a:
  • spouse
  • partner or ex-partner
  • de facto
  • family member
  • carer or person living in the same household

What can be done about Domestic Violence?

There are laws that give police and the courts the power to provide you with immediate protection, at any time, day or night. If you feel threatened or are worried about your family’s safety call Triple Zero (000).

Police can arrest and charge the person who is violent or threatening towards you, or damages your property. They can make an application on your behalf for an Apprehended Domestic Violence Order (ADVO) to protect you from future threats and/or violence. Children and victims of Domestic & Family Violence have the right to live safely in their homes. An ADVO is an order made by the court to protect you from future harm. This order can include an Exclusion Order which prohibits the abusive person from returning to the home. The ADVO restricts the behaviour of the person you fear – this person is referred to as the defendant.

It can be difficult to adjust to your new circumstances and this can impact on your mental health.

Worrying about the impact of relationship breakdown, separation and divorce on children can add to the stress of the situation.

There are a range of services available which provide assistance and support to those experiencing relationship breakdown, separation and divorce. Family Relationship Centres are a first port of call for families seeking help. Through information and referral, the centres help families strengthen relationships and deal with relationship difficulties.

Changes to Australia's family law system introduced since July 2006 means that individuals wanting to apply to the court for a parenting order must first attempt family dispute resolution if appropriate. If family dispute resolution is not appropriate or an agreement not reached then a certificate can be obtained from a registered family dispute resolution practitioner confirming an attempt at family dispute resolution was made.

Note: There are some exceptions to this requirement, such as cases involving family violence or child abuse.

Family Relationship centres can also refer individuals, couples and families to a range of other helpful services to enhance family relationships.
