Peter Magee

Domestic violence can occur in a number of different ways, it is not limited to physical or sexual abuse and some people have been exposed to it for so long they can reconcile or justify the treatment they receive from their partner. Domestic violence is perpetrated by men against women, men against men, women against men and women against women.

Issues in relation to domestic violence, including Intervention Orders, are dealt with by police and criminal lawyers in the Magistrates' Court. These issues are, however, incredibly important in family law matters including parenting and property proceedings. In some cases, where there have been findings made by a Magistrate in contested Intervention Order proceedings, one or both parties may be prevented from re-agitating those issues in the Family Law Courts unless there is different or new evidence which might affect the initial findings.

If you are experiencing domestic violence in your relationship, there any many community organisations that you can reach out to for help.
