Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE 

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.

If you are a victim of family or domestic violence or abuse, and either have or are seeking to have, an apprehended violence order (AVO) put into place, let the team of expert lawyers at Brydens Lawyers assist in explaining what your rights and options are.

"I couldn’t be happier with the Family law team at Bryden Lawyers. I dealt with Natalie and Amanda who were both professional and knowledgeable in my case which ran for 2 years. Overall, I was impressed with the way they guided me in that time, and I felt I could make accurate decisions clearly on their advice. This helped achieve a good outcome to the case and in the end, I considered the cost to be very reasonable for the amount of time that was spent on the matter"
