Family violence, also known as domestic violence, is defined within the Family Law Act 1975 (FLA) as violent, threatening or other behaviour by a person that coerces or controls a member of the person’s family or causes the family member to be fearful.
Family violence can extend to physical, sexual, emotional or psychological abuse. Family violence can include behaviour such as restricting access to money, to family members or to cultural support, or even limiting social independence.
It is important to address any potential family or domestic violence issues following separation, particularly when children are involved as exposing a child or children to such violence can be regarded as child abuse.
