Domestic Violence is not simply the act of a man physically attacking a woman. It can cover a large range of abuse caused physically, emotionally, and financially by both men and women. In Queensland, the law is taking definitive steps to try and better broach these issues, and if you are a victim of domestic or family violence, or are unsure of what this may mean – then you need to make sure that you talk to legal professionals such as the Phoenix Family Law team.
Phoenix Law is an experienced team that will treat your case with respect, confidentially and professionalism as support through the domestic violence process is of the utmost importance.
An important step with Domestic Violence is applying for and receiving a Protection Order, or Domestic Violence Order. In Queensland, this will only be applied in specific circumstances when domestic violence has occurred, there is a ‘relevant relationship’, and the court decides that the order is necessary. The way in which the court operates can be difficult to understand, especially when you’re going through a rough period in your life. That is why it is important to consult with a firm experienced in Domestic Violence Orders in Queensland and can assist you with the process.
