What is Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence encompasses a range of abusive behaviours, including physical, emotional, and financial abuse, as well as coercive control. If you or your children are experiencing domestic violence, it is crucial to seek help and take the necessary steps to protect yourself and your family.

The law provides various legal remedies and protections for victims of domestic violence. These measures aim to safeguard the well-being of the affected individuals and promote a safe and secure environment for the entire family. Some of the key aspects of family law related to domestic violence include:

  1. Intervention Orders (Restraining Orders): These are court orders that prohibit the abuser from contacting or approaching the victim and may also include other provisions to ensure the safety of the victim and their children. Our team can assist you in applying for an intervention order and guide you through the legal process.
  2. Child Custody and Visitation: In cases of domestic violence, the safety and best interests of the children are of utmost importance. Family law takes into account the history of domestic violence when determining child custody and visitation arrangements. Our lawyers can advocate for your rights and work towards securing a custody arrangement that prioritizes your children’s well-being.
  3. Property and Financial Matters: Domestic violence can also have significant implications for property and financial matters in family law. Our team can help you understand your rights and options when it comes to dividing assets, spousal maintenance, and other financial considerations in the context of domestic violence.

At Buckley Lawyers, we are dedicated to providing compassionate and comprehensive legal support to victims of domestic violence. Our services include:

  1. Expert Legal Advice: We will provide you with expert advice tailored to your specific circumstances, explaining your rights and the legal options available to you.
  2. Protection Orders: Our lawyers can assist you in obtaining intervention orders to ensure your safety and the safety of your children.
