According to the Domestic Violence Resource Centre, domestic and family violence occurs when someone in an intimate or familial relationship attempts to gain and/or maintain power and control over another through a wide range of abusive behaviours. Some of these behaviours may include:
Domestic and family violence does not discriminate. It can happen to anyone regardless of their race, colour or religion. It can also happen in any part of our community and can affect all types of relationships (e.g. lesbian, gay, heterosexual). Domestic and family violence is not acceptable and can have far reaching consequences for you and your children. If you are being abused, talk to one of our friendly family lawyers who can talk to you about your options. Contact us today.
