Family violence (likewise referred to as domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not just are orders available (in the Magistrates Court) to provide security to the victim, but the Family Court and Federal Circuit Court will take any accusations of domestic violence into consideration when determining future parenting arrangements for kids.

The traditional definition of domestic violence (physical and sexual abuse) was expanded in late 2012 and now incorporates a much broader scope of behaviours such as:

  •  emotional and psychological abuse
  • financial abuse
  • threatening behaviour
  • behaviour which is coercive
  • behaviour which controls or dominates another individual and triggers them to fear for their security or wellbeing.
