Family Violence

Family violence

SAFETY FIRST: If you have concerns about your safety or do not want your information to be shared with your former partner, do not proceed.

If you or a member of your family is unsure whether you are at risk of family violence contact 1800 Respect. This service provides information to help you identify family violence. The service provides free and confidential support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Family violence can create a power imbalance in the relationship. A power imbalance may prevent you from getting a fair division of money and property, or lead to a situation where you feel you have to agree to parenting arrangements that you believe are not in the best interests of the children. If you feel you are in this situation do not use amica and get legal help.

If you experienced family violence in your relationship with your former partner, amica might not be suitable for you. If you are not sure whether amica is safe for you, get legal help.

If there is already a family violence order in place in relation to you and your former partner, do not use amica or accept an invitation sent to you from your former partner. If your former partner has sent you an invitation to use amica, don't accept the invitation and get legal help.
