Family violence and the need for protection are an extremely important area for the Family Court to deal with. Family Lawyer Shaun Cousins is holding a free seminar to discuss what options are available to people who find themselves or a loved one in a position where they need assistance from the Court to protect themselves. It is also a very private area of law that can affect anybody at any time.

The goal is to provide information and an overview about the options available to before, during and after Court proceedings occur, including:

  •          What options are available to people when Family Violence is occurring?
  •          What is family violence?
  •          What is a Protection Order and how can this help?
  •          What is a Police Safety Order?
  •          How can I get support as a victim of family violence?
  •          What is the Court process? What outcomes can I expect?
  •          Family violence leave and employment
  •          Undertakings and what they can and cannot do?

There will also be a forum to answer any confidential but general questions you might have about these issues before, during and after the Webinar.
