Domestic Violence and AVOs

Recent studies show that the problem of domestic violence is more wide-spread in our community than commonly perceived. It doesn’t just affect the parents, but also their children.  Unfortunately domestic violence, or the threat of violence, can also make it more difficult to separate or to stand up for your entitlements.  At Selvaggio Family Lawyers, we help you through the process.

If you are in a relationship that is affected by domestic violence it is important that you talk to us, as well as to inform the police if you have any concerns for your safety or the safety of your children. 

At Selvaggio Family Lawyers we can help you to apply for Court Violence Orders that can prohibit your ex-partner or spouse from coming within a certain distance of you, or your family.  We can also recommend a variety of support services if required.
