Family Law

Family Violence & AVOs

The existence of family violence in a relationship, particularly where children are concerned, can play a significant role in family law proceedings. It is not necessary for a party to have been charged with a violent offence or for police to have even been invovled for an allegation of family violence to be made and relied on in Family Court proceedings. However, where an AVO exists or an Applicaiton for an AVO is on foot, it is relevant to understand the impact that this and any other allegations of violence can have in property settlement and child custody matters.


If you are involved in family law proceedings where family violence or an Apprehended Violence Order (AVO) is a factor in the proceedings, we invite you to contact your nearest Prime Lawyers office.

We have offices in Sydney, Parramatta, Chatswood, Sutherland and Wollongong.
