On 14 November 2017, 100 workers attended the NIFVS Forum to find out more about supporting victim survivors of family violence through the legal system. Presenters from Victoria Police, community legal centres, courts and specialist family violence services explained what to expect from Victoria Police; how to achieve safe experiences and positive outcomes through the Magistrates’ Court; the complexities of the Family Court; perpetrator tactics and barriers to effective justice.
Presenters identified the need for workers to be a bridge between victim survivors and the family violence legal system by being informed and advocating on behalf of women.
