Additional Specialist Family Violence Courts Gazetted
On Thursday, 6 October, seven new Specialist Family Violence Courts (SFVC) were gazetted, including Melbourne and Broadmeadows.
The new SFVC’s feature remote hearing facilities, more staff, improved processes and list management, to provide a better and more specialised response to family violence and strengthen a multi-disciplinary response within local communities.
There are now 12 SFVCs across the state, working with local community organisations, legal services and Victoria Police to deliver a more integrated response to family violence.
