If you have experienced family violence, you should seek legal advice as soon as possible. There are several legal processes available to victims of family violence, including reporting matters to police, intervention order applications and family law applications. The best approach to ensure the safety of you and your children will depend on your individual circumstances.

If you require family law orders due to family violence, you may be able to seek urgent court orders and be exempt from requirements such as attending mediation or Family Dispute Resolution.
