Domestic Violence:

Overview FAQs Articles Locations

In general terms, domestic violence occurs when two people are in a relationship and one person is violent towards the other. The victims of domestic violence are often frightened of their partners and scared to come forward in relation to the domestic violence.

Forms of domestic violence

Domestic violence can take a number of forms including:

  • Physical: this form of violence is the most visible and can include punching, beating and sexually assaulting;
  • Emotional: this form of violence is unnoticeable but can have significant impacts on the self esteem of the victim, if ignored;
  • Economical: this form of violence occurs when you are unable to make independent decisions about money and have to continuously ask your partner whenever you require money. At times, it can become extremely unreasonable to have to ask for money for every single thing; and
  • Social: this form of violence occurs by a person with whom you have a domestic relationship teases and insults you repeatedly in front of others and keeps you isolated from your family and friends. The person controls your social life by deciding where you go and who you hang out with.

Representing the defendant

Not all complainants are true victims of domestic violence.  Alleged victims of domestic violence sometimes make complaints that are unfounded or unjustified or otherwise vexatious or frivolous. 

If you are a suspect for a domestic violence offence or offences, or have been charged with a domestic violence offence or offences, or are otherwise on the receiving end of an unfounded Application by the Police or your partner or ex-partner for an Apprehended Domestic Violence Orders (ADVO), then you should immediately seek legal advice. Our Criminal Lawyers are highly experienced in the area of domestic violence and will provide you with options to protect you from harm.
