Amazing Service & Information - I am a Disability Advocate and I was ringing for a distressed client who had had a family member pass away. The lady on the phone was pleasant, professional and tended to my inquiry straight away. Would not hesitate to use this service again.

Thanks to Tracy, Rachael and the team for working with me to give me a better than expected outcome financially and essentially Tracy for keeping me on track during a tough mediation. Still some work to do but you guys have been so professional and helpful throughout this messy process.

The half hour webinar was extremely useful and easy to understand. In a difficult time, you don't want "legal speak" and this was definitely not that, highly recommend for anybody who has just seperated

Many people mistakenly assume that Domestic Violence is the act of physical violence by men upon women. Many people are surprised to learn that the definition of Domestic Violence is very broad and can be as simple as swearing at a person or cutting off access to a bank account.

Domestic Violence does not only just occur against women. Domestic Violence can occur against men, parents or children.

Domestic Violence is defined to include physical violence, wilful damage, intimidation, harassment, economic abuse, indecent act or threats of any of the above.

There are only certain categories of relationships that are covered under the Family Protection (Domestic Violence) Act. The law does not allow just anybody to obtain an order which differs from the laws in NSW.

Even if the court finds that an Act of Domestic Violence has occurred the court nevertheless is required to consider whether the Order is in fact, necessary and desirable. If the court does not believe is is necessary or desirable then the Order will not be made.
