Frequently Asked Questions

How does domestic violence impact child custody and parenting arrangements?

In Australia, the Family Law Act prioritises the best interests of the child, which includes protecting them from physical or psychological harm from being subjected to, or exposed to, abuse, neglect, or family violence. If domestic violence is a factor, courts take it very seriously when making parenting orders. The presence of domestic violence may impact custody and parenting arrangements significantly, leading to supervised visits or limited access for the parent involved in violence to ensure the child’s safety and wellbeing.

Yes, in Australia, a protection order, commonly known as a Domestic Violence Order (DVO), can be modified or extended. The individual in need of protection, or the police, can apply to the court for changes to the conditions of the order or for an extension of its duration. This is particularly relevant if circumstances change, or if there’s an ongoing risk to the safety of the person protected by the order. The process involves filing an application with the court, and a hearing may be required to decide on the modification or extension.

Victims of domestic violence in Australia have access to a range of resources during the legal process, including legal advice, counselling services, and support groups. Legal Aid provides free legal advice and representation for eligible individuals. There are also specialised domestic violence units and community legal centres that offer support and advice. Furthermore, the National Domestic Violence Hotline offers immediate support, and organisations like 1800RESPECT provide counselling and referrals for victims of domestic and family violence.

The time it takes to resolve a domestic violence case in an Australian court can vary widely depending on the complexity of the case, the court’s schedule, and whether it’s contested. An interim order can be issued relatively quickly, often on the same day the application is made, to provide immediate protection. However, for a final order to be made, especially if the order is contested, it might take several months. It’s important for individuals involved in such cases to prepare for a process that can be lengthy and to seek support from legal professionals and support services throughout.
