Domestic Violence


Domestic Violence is not only physical abuse, it also includes verbal, emotional, mental and financial abuse.

The topic of Domestic Violence can be difficult to talk about. However if you are a victim, and are fearful the abuse may continue, it is possible you could obtain a Domestic Violence Order (“DVO”) which can protect you against violence from the abusing person/s. You may obtain assistance from police, staff at the local Magistrates Court or your Solicitor with regard to completing an application for a DVO. There are also refuges and support networks available.

If you have recently been served with a Domestic Violence Order, and you disagree with the contents of the application or you believe there is no likelihood of Domestic Violence occurring in the future, you may be able to defend the application.

We can assist in making an application or contesting an application for a DVO.
