Family Violence Service

The Family Violence Service provides information and support on dealing with violence in intimate or family relationships, including those between:

  • partners - married, de facto or otherwise
  • ex partners
  • same sex couples
  • family members
  • children of either member of a couple
  • live-in carers.

The free and confidential service provides information advocacy and support to people who have experienced violence in their relationships.

Specially trained staff can assist with:

  • discussing specific violence issues and the options available to deal with them
  • developing a safety plan
  • completing court-related documents
  • applying for a violence restraining order
  • preparing for court and in-court support
  • information about ongoing court matters
  • accessing services such as counselling, police, legal assistance, medical care and other relevant agencies.

If you are a victim of a family violence offence and charges are laid, the offender may appear in one of the metropolitan Family Violence Courts. The specialised Family Violence Courts deal exclusively with family violence matters to support victims and ensure their safety. It also makes family violence offenders more accountable for their behaviour.

The Family Violence Courts deal with criminal cases on one day a week. A specialist case management team supports the court’s operation. The case management team includes members from the Department of the Attorney General, Department of Corrective Services, WA Police, Kinway or Relationships Australia and the Department for Child Protection.

The Family Violence Service can help you to have a voice in Court.

The Family Violence Service can be contacted by telephone or in person at the following locations. Some Court locations also have an Aboriginal worker available to assist clients.
