Family Violence in Australia

A recent Justice Project report on Family Violence in Australia by Law Council of Australia, dated August 2018:

Family violence can affect anyone, irrespective of age, gender, socio-economic status or cultural background. 

According to statistics, in 2016 it was reported that Australian police dealt with family violence, on average, every two minutes and it was nearly three times more likely for women to experience partner violence than men.

The report prepared by the Law Council of Australia entitled “People Who Experience Family Violence” is an investigation into the barriers that people face accessing justice in circumstances of family violence.

More and more family violence features in the break-down of relationships and its presence will make reaching an agreement to separate your financial affairs or make proper arrangements for the children all that more difficult.
