Family violence (likewise called domestic violence) is taken very seriously by the Courts, not just are orders available (in the Magistrates Court) to provide protection 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 children.

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

  •  emotional and psychological abuse
  • economic abuse
  • threatening behaviour
