Dealing with domestic violence in the court system can be intimidating and challenging. Choosing the right lawyer can make a significant difference to your experience and outcome in court.
Domestic and family violence charges relate to violence or abuse in intimate personal, familial or informal care relationships. Domestic violence may include physical, sexual, emotional, psychological or economic abuse. These abuses may be threatened or carried out, and are conducted with the intent to coerce, control or instil fear in the victim. Domestic violence is considered an aggravating factor when sentencing is carried out.
Domestic Violence Orders (DVOs) are issued by a magistrate to restrict the movements or behaviours of an abusive person, in order to provide safety to a person or family. The police may apply for a DVO, or a person may ask a lawyer to apply for one or review the conditions of the order.
In 2017, Queensland implemented a new criminal offence relating to acts of non-fatal choking and strangulation in domestic violence situations. If a person is convicted of this charge of non-fatal strangulation or suffocation in a domestic violence setting they may face a maximum of 7 years imprisonment.
How To Choose A Lawyer For Domestic Violence Offences
