Domestic violence allegations are serious and require a specialised response. Our clients face applications by Police and spouses, and of course once an order is made against you, allegations of breaches can be easily added. Sadly, allegations of domestic violence, applications for orders and breaches, are often used as a weapon in breakups. We often see spouses use the domestic violence system to control parenting issues leading to vexatious and malicious applications. The Courts are choked with these types of applications. In some instances the impact on your career from such orders can be severe. We have a significant body of experience in the domestic violence courts across Queensland.
